Gaza: US condemns Hamas ceasefire breach

An Israeli soldier sits on top of a Merkava tank along the border between Israel and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, on July 30, 2014The United States placed the blame for the swift collapse of the latest Gaza ceasefire squarely at the door of Hamas on Friday, accusing the Palestinian militants of launching a “barbaric” attack. President Barack Obama stressed it would be “very hard” to get another truce in the Gaza Strip unless Hamas showed it was serious about laying down its arms and could be trusted to keep its word. Obama said the United States “unequivocally condemned Hamas and the Palestinian factions that were responsible for killing two Israeli soldiers, and abducting a third almost minutes after a ceasefire had been announced.” The US has staunchly stood by Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas rocket fire, but in recent days has been expressing mounting concern about the rising Palestinian civilian death toll in Israel’s assault on Gaza.
