Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu consulted by telephone with US President Barack Obama on Friday evening.

During the conversation, rocket sirens sounded. Netanyahu told Obama that millions of Israeli civilians were being forced to endure the sirens.



Netanyahu told Obama that Hamas was responsible for the harm done to Palestinian civilians in Gaza who are being used as human shields. The premier mentioned UNRWA's acknowledgement that Hamas had hid rockets underneath one of the UN agency's schools in Gaza.

The prime minister thanked Obama for Washington's support for Israel's right to defend itself as well as American backing for the Iron Dome project.
