 Condolezza rice tells Olmert she is concerned about palestinians

Extreme barf alert…

Yahoo News – U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice voiced concern on Thursday about Palestinian civilians killed by Israeli attacks in the Gaza Strip, but stopped short of an explicit call for Israel to exercise restraint.

A surge in Israeli-Palestinian violence along the border of Gaza has raised fears of a full-scale conflict amid public pressure on Israeli President Ehud Olmert for tougher military action to deal with rocket attacks by Islamic group Hamas.

A rocket launched from the Hamas-run Gaza Strip killed a man in Israel on Wednesday, the first such death in nine months, and Israeli air strikes killed six Palestinian militants and five civilians in the territory.

Rice, who met Olmert in Tokyo on Thursday, will visit Israel and the Palestinian territories next week to try to push along U.S.-brokered peace talks complicated by the growing violence.
