Mofaz: Hamas Has Upper Hand, Truce Mistake

Israeli opposition leader and Kadima chairman Shaul MofMofazaz slammed the truce between the Zionist entity and resistance in Gaza as a mistake, saying that Hamas had the upper hand.

“The army knows how to do its work, and we could have won this time. A cease-fire at this point is a mistake; this is not how a war against terror ends. Hamas has the upper hand,” the former Israeli cheif of staff wrote on his Facebook page.

“The goals of his operation were not reached, and the next round is only a matter of time,” he said, adding: “We should not have stopped at this stage. Hamas got stronger and we did not gain deterrence.”

Ceasefire took effect in Gaza on Wednesday at 21:00. The agreement was announced by Egyptian Foreign Minister Kamel Amr and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a press conference in Cairo.
