The US has called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to "discuss the latest attacks on Israel out of the Gaza Strip by Hamas and other militants," the US Mission to the UN said in a statement.
The Mission expected the meeting to take place Wednesday afternoon.
"The recent attacks out of Gaza are the largest we have seen since 2014. Mortars fired by Palestinian militants hit civilian infrastructure, including a kindergarten. The Security Council should be outraged and respond to this latest bout of violence directed at innocent Israeli civilians, and the Palestinian leadership needs to be held accountable for what they're allowing to happen in Gaza," US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, Men's Shoe Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 92 844652-004,Inexpensive 153162 Nike Air Force 1 Women Shoes

IDF says Islamic Jihad responsible
In a significant move, Israel singled out Islamic Jihad as the militant group that carried out Tuesday's attacks.
In a statement, the IDF said the action was a "severe, dangerous, and orchestrated act of terror, aimed at Israeli civilians and children."NIKE ZOOM SB STEFAN JANOSKI SE Cool Grey/Obsidian/White/Cool Gre,Comfortable 161904 Nike Free 3.0 V4 Women Black Red White Shoes

Islamic Jihad "follows the ideology of Iran, is funded by Iran, and in today's attack, used munition made by Iran," the statement said.
But the IDF statement also repeated Israel's often-stated position that it continues to hold Hamas -- the militant group that controls Gaza -- accountable for everything that happens in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad claimed joint responsibility for the attacks.
In a statement issued by the militant groups' armed wings, the Al-Qassam Brigades and the Al-Quds Brigades respectively, the two groups blamed Israel for starting the latest round of aggression and said they had cooperated in launching the attacks because Israel's "crimes could not be tolerated in any way."
The statement said that if Israel continued to attack Gaza then "all resistance options remain open no matter what the cost."Adidas Solar Boost Mens Black/Scarlet Running Shoes V25778,Inexpensive 232790 Nike Free Run 2 Women Blue Orange Shoes
