Netanyahu, Obama discuss ways to calm Gaza situation

WASHINGTON - Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called US President Barack Obama on Friday and the two discussed options for "de-escalating" the situation in Israel and Gaza, the White House said.
Obama "reiterated US support for Israel's right to defend itself, and expressed regret over the loss of Israeli and Palestinian civilian lives," according to a statement on the call.
"The prime minister expressed his deep appreciation to the president and the American people for the United States' investment in the Iron Dome rocket and mortar defense system, which has effectively defeated hundreds of incoming rockets from Gaza," the statement said.
