Kerry tells Netanyahu US still ready to broker Gaza truce

July 13, 2014 7:11 P.M. (Updated: July 13, 2014 7:11 P.M.)
VIENNA (AFP) -- US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday phoned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to renew a US offer to help mediate a truce as Israel stepped up its military campaign against the Gaza Strip.

Kerry "highlighted the US concern about escalating tensions on the ground," a senior State Department official said, and told the Israeli leader that he was engaged with regional leaders "to help to stop the rocket fire so calm can be restored and civilian casualties prevented".
