U.S. officials denied reports of a change in the procedure through which their government supplies arms to Israel.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf said: “Let me be clear: There has been no change in policy, period.” But she also said that, “Given the crisis in Gaza, it is natural that agencies take additional care with deliveries as part of an inter-agency process.”
Hamas said it won the war and forced Israel to retreat because it couldn't wipe out Hamas.
It agree to a three-day ceasefire that was supposed to end this installment of the on-going Israel-Gaza wars but when Israel refused to surrender to its demands, the terrorist group let the pause expire and resumed firing rockets and mortars into Israel. Naturally, the renewed violence was all Israel's fault, a Hamas spokesman said, because the Zionists wouldn't meet Hamas's conditions.
