The US expressed support for Israel Friday night after apparent Israeli artillery fire caused the death of at least 12 Palestinians on a Gaza coast beach. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said that Israel had the right to defend itself, especially while terrorists were attacking it. However, McCormack added that Israel must consider the results well and do what was necessary to prevent harming innocent civilians.
