Israel has a diplomatic clock of only two to three weeks to conduct its war to oust Hamas from Gaza, Foreign Minister Eli Cohen told reporters in Jerusalem on Monday as international calls for a ceasefire have grown. “From a diplomatic point of view, we recognize that pressure has begun to bear on Israel. The pressure is not very high [now], but it is increasing,” Cohen said.

When asked how long a diplomatic clock he believed Israel had, he answered “two to three weeks.” Cohen stated, "From our point of view there is no clock — we won't stop the military campaign until we've eliminated Hamas and returned the hostages."

FM expects international pressure on Israel to rise significantly ‘within 2-3 weeks’
Eli Cohen says diplomatic counterparts have already asked Israel for ceasefire in private conversations; asserts Israel will not halt before achieving goals
By Jeremy Sharon

Israel will likely see international pressure to halt or curb its Gaza operation rise significantly within the next few weeks, Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said Monday. In a briefing to reporters, Cohen said diplomatic pressure had begun to increase and that the “diplomatic window” for the IDF campaign in Gaza will likely remain open for another two or three weeks before it becomes significant. Cohen did not say whether such pressure would include demands for a ceasefire or only greater action to aid civilians in the Strip.
