PM: Gaza campaign to go on until calm restored to Israel

Aug. 4, 2014 6:56 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 4, 2014 6:56 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israel will not stop its 28-day military campaign in Gaza until long-term calm is restored, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday, shunning increasingly vocal world demands for a truce.

"The campaign in Gaza is continuing," he said at the end of a seven-hour humanitarian lull which saw violence subside in the battered enclave.

"This operation will only end when quiet and security is established for the citizens of Israel for a prolonged period."
