US President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Friday to commend the country's efforts to help calm the situation in Israel and Gaza and underscored his hope of restoring stability there, the White House said.

Earlier Friday, Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil visited the Strip. Despite Israel having agreed to a ceasefire during Kandil's approximately three hour visit, dozens of rockets rained down on the South while the Egyptian prime minister was still in Gaza.
