US Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated on Thursday the US stance completely supporting Israel's right to defend itself amid the current escalations with Hamas.

The US has been in touch with Israeli and Palestinian leaders to determine the way to a ceasefire, he said.

"It's a dangerous moment" in Israel and the Palestinian territories, and the US will do all it can to bring an end to violence, he added.
