Indiana 8th District Congressman Larry Bucshon says he's confident there will be a cease-fire soon along the Gaza Strip.

Bucshon says Hamas is escalating the recent violence and putting innocent lives at risk. He adds the recent ground support by Israeli troops could put an end to the deadly air strikes.

"But I think it all does depend on also the radical people from Hamas quit hiding amongst the regular Palestinian people and firing bombs into Israel," said Bucshon. "And until they quit doing that, it's going to be hard to stop this ongoing conflict."

Bucshon says most Palestinians are not involved in this conflict, just a group of "radicals."
