Israeli Candidates Resume Campaigns

Soon after the Israel-Hamas ceasefire was announced on Thursday, a ceasefire of another sort ended. Although there was an understanding among Israeli presidential candidates that no campaigning would occur during the recent Gaza conflict, with the current truce in place all bets are off. However, some believe the campaigning never really stopped: President Benjamin Netanyahu has been accused of delaying the announcement of the current ceasefire due to concerns that air-raid sirens toward the end of the conflict would hurt his election prospects.
