The United States calls on the groups responsible to end these attacks at once and we underscore that Israel, like all nations, has a right to self-defense. We also express our deepest condolences for the deaths of Palestinian civilians in Gaza yesterday.
We stress the importance of calm and urge all parties to do everything in their power to prevent further violence and civilian casualties.
