IDF Operation Protective Edge - August 18, 2014 10:01-11:59pm

11:34pm Israeli officials confirm the cease fire has been extended by 24 hours.
While PA sources are being quoted by Israeli media with a 7 point agreement between Hamas and Israel....Israel denies such a deal has been made.

We must hope that the 7 pt. deal is only PA wishful thinking because Israel gains nothing from the agreement.

10:34pm "If my son planned this operation [of kidnapping and murdering the 3 Israeli teenagers] then it is an honor for us." --Ali Qu'asma...father of wanted terrorist cell commander Husam Qu'asma. (Channel 10)

10:10pm Prime Minister Netanyahu: "The IDF is prepared for a very powerful and aggressive action if the attacks are renewed"

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon held a security meeting tonight at a naval base in Ashdod. At the end of the meeting, Prime Minister Netanyahu said: "We are jointly leading this complex campaign with determination and responsibility. We are prepared for all eventualities - the Israeli negotiation team in Cairo has been instructed to stand strong on Israel's security needs and the IDF is prepared for a very powerful and aggressive action if the attacks are renewed. In this stormy Middle East, you need a combination of strength and staying power. The IDF has a lot of strength, and the Eternal Nation has proven that we do not fear a long path. This might take a long time and we need patience, perseverance and determination. This combination of persistence and strength will help us achieve the goals of the current operation - quiet and security for all citizens of Israel."

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said: "Operation Defensive Edge is not over. As we pledged, we will not stop untill we bring quiet and security. We are prepared for the outcome of the discussions in Cairo, whether they will bring quiet or if someone will attempt to challenge us with an escalation. The IDF is standing ready to respond with great power to any developments. Hamas will not drag us into a war of attrition, and if they try, they will find that they will get much more than they bargained for."
