Obama urges end to Hamas rocket fire in call to Egypt's Mursi

Nov. 19, 2012 9:28 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 19, 2012 9:28 P.M.)
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- US President Barack Obama stressed the need for an end to Hamas rocket attacks on Israel in a telephone call to Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi on Monday, the White House said.

Obama "underscored the necessity of Hamas ending rocket fire into Israel" in his call to Mursi, the White House said in a statement. During the call, and in a separate one to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Obama voiced regret over the loss of Israeli and Palestinian lives, the White House said.

Obama made the calls from Cambodia, where he is attending the East Asian Summit of regional and world leaders, the White House said.

Israel has bombarded the Gaza Strip since Wednesday, killing over 100 Palestinians.
