WASHINGTON, Nov 7 (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that Israel would consider “tactical little pauses” in Gaza fighting to facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid or allow the exit of hostages held by Hamas militants.

But the Israeli leader reiterated his country’s rejection of a ceasefire without the release of all people being held captive in the Hamas-ruled Palestinian enclave.

Netanyahu made the comments in a U.S. television interview during which he was asked who should govern Gaza after fighting is over.

“I think Israel will for an indefinite period will have the overall security responsibility because we’ve seen what happens when we don’t have that security responsibility,” Netanyahu told ABC News.
