TEL AVIV (Ma'an) -- Despite the ceasefire, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, on Monday, that Israel is preparing for another round of confrontations in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that several hours after the Egypt-mediated ceasefire agreement was declared, Netnayahu said in a statement, “In the past two days, we have hit Hamas and Islamic Jihad with great force.”

Netanyahu pointed out, “We struck more than 350 targets, hit terrorist operatives and their leader, and destroyed terrorist infrastructure.”

“Still,” he added, “The campaign is not over, it requires patience and deliberation. We are preparing to continue.”
