U.S.: There's Not Much Abbas Can Do About Rocket Attacks


The U.S. State Department condemned on Wednesday the rocket fire from Gaza, but also said that Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas cannot do much to stop the attacks, despite having signed a unity pact with Hamas.

“We condemn all rocket fire from Gaza. It is unprovoked aggression against civilian targets and is totally unacceptable,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters, speaking after a Kassam rocket fired by terrorists in Gaza exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council area, causing no physical injuries or damages.
