US Secretary of State John Kerry called on Hamas to consider a cease-fire. "It is important for Hamas to now step up and be reasonable and understand that (if) you accept the cease-fire, you save lives," he told Fox News on Sunday.

Kerry also said that the United States believes Israel has a right to defend itself from rockets fired from Gaza and from attacks launched from cross-border tunnels.
