Clinton Arrives in Israel


Hillary Clinton arrives in Israel Tuesday night amid hopes that the U.S. Secretary of State can help end the violence in the Middle East. A Hamas official said Tuesday that Egyptian efforts to broker a truce with Israel have been held up because the Israeli government has yet to respond to proposals. The official says there will be no ceasefire until Wednesday at the earliest. Israel pressed on with its strikes in Gaza with medical officials saying 21 Palestinians were killed Tuesday.
