Obama: US using all means to get Israel cease-fire
President Barack Obama says the United States will use all of its diplomatic resources and relationships to secure a deal on a cease-fire to end violence between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.


Obama says the US supports Egypt's continued efforts to restore the 2012 cease-fire. He says the US is working with its partners in the region to secure a cease-fire and will stay in close contact over the next 24 hours.
