Israel's Ehud Barak: 'We must ease the humanitarian situation in Gaza'

In an interview with FRANCE 24, former Israeli PM Ehud Barak reacted to the cancellation of a football match between Israel and Argentina, PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Europe, as well as the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. Barak supports a two-state solution in the Middle East, calling it "the only long-term possible stable equilibrium" and said Israel must take steps to "ease the humanitarian situation in Gaza", while fighting Hamas. Finally, he said Netanyahu "should resign".
