15th May 2021 the Times of Israel quoted Israeli television channel 12 news reports that the Israeli-Palestinian ceasefire conditions are brewing, but Israel does not want a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
Israeli leaders reportedly hope the attack will last for several days and complete the IDF’s operational plans. A senior Israeli official also said that “it is not yet time for a ceasefire, and we will continue to launch attacks”.
The report also predicted that ceasefire talks could begin next week. Israel believes that, despite the restrictions, there is still some room for diplomatic mediation in the negotiations.
