More Rockets Hit Israel, “Disproportionate” Response Threatened
“Hamas was hit like it was never hit before,” Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told Israel’s Channel 10 TV on Friday. “If we will have to hit Hamas again, we will.”
Both Hamas and Israel are keeping a tense and steady truce, and both sides expressed concern that the fighting may not yet be over.
President Barack Obama’s new Middle East envoy promised a vigorous push for Israel-Palestinian peace, saying Gaza militants must end their weapons smuggling and the territory’s blockaded borders must be pried open if a cease-fire already marred by violence is to take hold.
George Mitchell held talks with regional leaders this week to determine the next steps the Obama administration would take toward reviving peace negotiations following Israel’s blistering military offensive against Gaza’s Islamic Hamas rulers.
