US Asks Israel to Do More to Protect Civilians


The United States urged Israel on Thursday to do more to protect civilians caught in the crossfire between the Jewish state and Hamas, after Israeli air strikes killed four children in Gaza, according to Agence France Presse.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters, "We ask (Israel) to redouble their efforts to prevent civilian casualties. We believe there is more that can be done."
