WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The United States has asked countries that have contact with Hamas to urge the group to stop its recent rocket attacks from Gaza, a White House adviser said on Thursday.

"We've ... urged those that have a degree of influence with Hamas such as Turkey, and Egypt and some of our European partners to use that influence to urge Hamas to de-escalate," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security advisor, in a conference call with reporters.

Asked whether the United States was concerned that Israeli ground forces would enter Gaza, Rhodes said: "Ultimately it's up to the Israeli government to make determinations about how they're going to carry out their military objectives."

MORE NEEDED THAN URGING Egypt to encourage Hamas to de-escalate the conflict, WOULD BE BLAMING EGYPT for facilitating the weapons smuggling to Hamas, which caused this war, the previous war, and will continue causing wars, every time that Gaza acquires rockets capable of hitting Israeli population centers !!!
