Clinton heads for Israel to discuss Gaza crisis

PanARMENIAN.Net - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left an Asia summit on Tuesday, Nov 20, headed for Israel to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, opening a round of talks with Middle East leaders on the Gaza crisis, a senior administration official said, according to Reuters.

Earlier, White House said that Hamas must end rocket attacks into Israel and that Egypt can be a partner in helping to resolve the conflict in Gaza. Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes made the comments during a briefing in Cambodia.

Meanwhile, the IDF said they struck some 100 targets in the Gaza Strip overnight and rockets fired from the coastal territory continued to set of red alert sirens in communities across the South as Israel's security cabinet met to discuss the latest cease-fire initiatives.

According to the IDF Spokesman's Office, underground rocket launching sites, weapons-smuggling tunnels and munitions warehouses were targeted in the strikes.
