JERUSALEM, Aug. 7, 2014 - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addresses a news conference in Jerusalem, on Aug. 6, 2014. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that the Gaza operation was a "proportionate and justified" response to Hamas' aggression, and accused Hamas of causing the high Palestinian death toll. "Every civilian casualty is a tragedy, a tragedy of Hamas' making," the prime minister told foreign reporters at a press conference, the first one held since the 72-hour ceasefire between Israel and Hamas came into effect early on Tuesday.
