US warns Israel against ground incursion

The United States on Monday warns against any Israeli ground invasion of Gaza, saying it will put even more civilians at risk than are currently in the crossfire of attacks on Hamas.

But the White House stops short of criticizing Israel over the civilian toll so far in Gaza from the offensive, saying the government has a “right” and “responsibility” to defend its citizens against rocket attacks.
