“To whoever doubts the achieving of these goals, I reiterate: There is no substitute for victory. We will not end the war until we achieve all of these goals,” the prime minister added, according to a Bloomberg report.

The U.S. has been pushing Israel to agree to a three-part cease-fire deal, backed by several countries including France, the U.K., Egypt, Qatar and by the European Commission.

The deal includes several conditions including that Israeli troops pull out of cities in the Gaza Strip, release humanitarian aid and free hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Hamas returning some of the hostages and captured Israeli soldiers.

But tense diplomatic talks between the two sides risk derailing, as both Hamas and Israel refuse to agree on how the negotiations over the implementation of the cease-fire should go.
