Israel assessing if conditions right for ceasefire, military source says

Israel is assessing whether conditions are right to halt its air campaign against Palestinian militants in Gaza but is preparing for “more days” of strikes if necessary, an Israeli military source said Wednesday.

“We are looking at when is the right moment for a ceasefire,” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The source added that Israel was evaluating whether its objective of degrading the fighting capacity of Gaza’s Hamas rulers had been achieved.

“The question is whether Hamas understands the message” that its rocket barrages towards Israel cannot recur, added the source.
