The US has condemned rocket fire by Hamas militants into Israel and expressed concern for civilians on both sides. Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza strip have killed several people so far, including children. White House spokesman Josh Earnest urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stay in contact with Palestinians to resolve the conflict Tuesday, but said the US supported the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
