Rhodes said “We believe Israel can do do more to avoid the types of casualties we’ve seen. The loss of Palestinian life, the loss of children. We believe Israel has to take greater care to avoid those types of civilian casualties. We’ve been heart broken by the loss of Israeli life. That’s why we want to work for a cease-fire so there can be an end to this violence. Israel has a right to defend itself. It needs to take care to avoid the tragic civilian casualties we’ve seen.”
