US: Israel Must Do More To Protect Gaza Civilians

Palestinian mourners gather around the bodies of Jihad Esam Shahebar, 10, Fullah Tariq Shahebar, 8, and Wasim Esam Shahebar, 9, during their funeral in Gaza City, Thursday, July 17, 2014. The children were killed by an Israeli missile strike at their house feeding pigeons on their roof in the Sabra neighborhood of Gaza City, the family said. Fierce fighting between Israel and Hamas resumed Thursday, including an airstrike that killed three Palestinian children feeding pigeons on their roof, after a temporary cease-fire that allowed Gazans to stock up on supplies.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration accused Israel on Thursday of failing to do all it can to prevent civilian casualties in Gaza during cross-border attacks.
Noting the deaths a day earlier of four boys who were killed on a Gaza beach by an Israeli strike, the State Department said the high civilian death toll in Gaza has been "heartbreaking." Three more children were killed in Gaza on Thursday.
