US: Gap exists between Israel protecting civilians and results

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken remarked at a news conference in Washington that a gap remains between Israel's intent to protect civilians and "the actual results on the ground."

"It remains imperative that Israel put a premium on civilian protection ... Civilian protection is an issue we are talking to Israelis about on a regular basis, including as recently as today," he explained. Blinken further noted that Israel should ensure that pauses are applied to broader areas and not just a neighborhood.

Meanwhile, United Kingdom Foreign Secretary David Cameron, who previously had a meeting with Blinken, commented that a "rush to elections in Gaza can be a mistake."
