Prosor: Support Israel, Condemn Hamas

Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, on Wednesday urged the UN Secretary General and the Security Council to support Israel, after it agreed to a ceasefire initiated by Egypt and Hamas rejected it.

"Israel saw the ceasefire as an opportunity to resume normal life, but Hamas rejected it in word and deed," Prosor wrote, calling on the world to support Israel and condemn Hamas.
