As news of some details of the ceasefire deal proposed by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry emerges, we also learn that the entire cabinet of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu rejected the proposal.

Some in the Israeli media quoted sources who described Kerry’s proposal as “the Qatari plan, with some ornaments.”

But Kerry continued with his efforts and announced that “we are working towards a brief, seven-day humanitarian ceasefire,” and just a few hours later, Netanyahu made another announcement.

“We agreed to consider a 12-hour ceasefire proposed by U.N.’s Ban ki-Moon,” Netanyahu stated, according to i24 News.
