U.S. Willing to 'Leverage Contacts' to Mediate Ceasefire


The United States on Friday said that it was ready to leverage its relationships in the Middle East to try to bring about a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, AFP reported.

The offer came a day after President Barack Obama called Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to offer to facilitate an end to Hamas rocket fire and Israeli retaliatory airstrikes.
