Ban: No quick-fix to Gaza Strip conflict

2012-11-21 18:53

Cairo - UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday there were "many details to work out" before a ceasefire could be reached to end the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.

"I am particularly concerned about the spiral of violence at the time of intense efforts to reach a ceasefire in Gaza and Israel," Ban said.

Speaking after a meeting with Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, whose country is trying to forge a truce, he said: "We all know there are many details to work out. But while that happens civilians continue to die."

    A quick-fix is what hamas so dearly wants...ceasefire= reloading session for them. I don't think israel want a repeat of this, so they will want a long term solution...it might involve more civlilians dying, but to get rid of those cowards aka hamas would be great.
