A White House official said on Friday, July 20, 2018 that Israel has a right to defend itself against Hamas attacks, and called on the terrorist group which controls Gaza to end the escalation.

"Israel has a right to defend itself. Hamas' aggression only produced misery for Gaza. Among victims of this situation are many Palestinians who aren't rioting but whose futures are dimmed by Hamas radicalism. Hamas must end this disastrous cycle," the official told Israel's Channel 10 News.

The comments came hours after IAF jets on Friday evening struck dozens of military targets belonging to Hamas in northern and southern Gaza, in response to a serious incident near the border in which an IDF soldier was killed by terrorist snipers, reports Arutz-7.
