NEW: Gantz Says Israel Should Agree to Two-Year Ceasefire to Get Hostages Back

Israel should pay the price of a "year or two-year-long" ceasefire in Gaza for the return of all the hostages taken by Hamas, MK Benny Gantz said in an interview with Channel 12 on Thursday.

The National Unity faction leader, who spoke following his resignation from the emergency war government on Sunday, said that Israel "must do whatever it takes to return the hostages."

Yikes. Gantz wants to give Sinwar a two-year head start on the next October 7 attack that Hamas has repeatedly promised to launch? I can't imagine that Israelis will think very highly of that proposal. The National Unity party is demanding new elections, but this proposal will likely make them wish for a lot more time until facing voters.
