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."
