President George W. Bush urged all parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to exercise restraint after 18 Palestinians were killed in an artillery barrage in Gaza. In a statement, Bush expressed hope that an Israeli government investigation into the incident will be completed quickly, and appropriate actions will be taken to avoid a recurrence. "We call on all parties to act with care and restraint so as to avoid any harm to innocent civilians," Bush said. Following the incident, Hamas' exiled leader called off a cease-fire with Israel and militants threatened to attack Americans.
