In an interview with the US network ABC, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu responded to the question of whether he believes a ceasefire in Gaza is possible:

“A ceasefire would be a surrender to Hamas. It would be a victory for Hamas. A ceasefire after the Al Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Centre would be no more possible than it would have been possible for you.”

When asked who should govern Gaza once the war is over, Netanyahu responds:

“Israel will have responsibility for security for an indefinite period, because when we have not that responsibility, what we have is the explosion of terror from Hamas.”

Netanyahu’s words are summarized as follows by the New York Times:

“Israel will govern Gaza”.
