While the current ceasefire is under way, questions are likely to be raised here in Israel about what this war has achieved.
Israel has lost more than 60 soldiers and nearly 2,000 people have been killed in Gaza in the last month, and yet Hamas is still able to fire rockets at Israel - it did so in the moments before the ceasefire came into effect.
I went down to the border today, and I spoke to about half a dozen Israeli soldiers who were returning from the fighting in Gaza. From them all I got the sense that they felt like they had completed their mission, but for now the war has not been won.
There have been two days of quiet in Gaza. No rockets or missiles, no more destroyed houses, no more ambulance sirens screaming.
A three-year-old girl has been rescued from Gaza and brought to London for life-saving heart surgery.
A small team of NHS doctors and surgeons is travel to Gaza to set up facilities and establish how best to use specialists and equipment.
