Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said to UN Secretary Ban Ki-moon Tuesday: Terrorists don’t share your concern for civilian casualties. They sacrifice their own children as human shields as well as victimizing Israeli innocents and that is a war crime. We would prefer a diplomatic solution. Otherwise military action is the only course. The UN Secretary called on all sides to cease the fire at once. He condemned missile attacks on Israeli civilians but urged Israel to exercise maximum restraint.
