French President Francois Hollande is urging partners to talk to Hamas and is pressing Israel for calm in hopes of reaching a cease-fire in Gaza. Hollande said in a televised interview Monday that "Israel can defend itself if it is attacked, but at the same time Israel should show restraint."


Hollande is pushing for a cease-fire and says he is looking for all possible ways to mediate one. He said in recent days he has been trying "to convince those who could have an influence on Hamas, on the Gaza Strip, and at the same time putting pressure on Israel."
