Emergency U.N. Meeting to Discuss Gaza

An emergency U.N. Security Council was called Wednesday night after Israel carried out rocket attacks on the Gaza Strip Wednesday, killing a Hamas military commander in response to days of rocket fire out of Gaza. President Obama also spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi Wednesday about the airstrikes, reiterating his support for Israel’s right to self-defense, but urging the country to avoid civilian casualties. The attack tragically killed the baby of BBC Arabic employee Jihad Misharawi.
