Clinton Presses for Ceasefire

Delivering remarks in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday evening, Secretary of State Clinton appeared confident that a ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants was close at hand. "The rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside Gaza on Israeli cities and towns must end," she said. Earlier Tuesday, Hamas announced that a "calming down" in violence was expected, while Egyptian and Palestinian officials called a ceasefire “imminent.” After seven days of deadly fighting, the death toll in Gaza has surpassed 122. Clinton is due in Cairo Wednesday morning to meet with Egyptian leaders who are in contact with Hamas.
