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. At a joint press conference Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was open to talks. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYING: "Now if there is a possibility of achieving a long term solution to the problem through diplomatic means, we prefer that. But if not, I am sure you understand that Israel will have to take whatever action is necessary to defend its people." Clinton offered a U.S. perspective. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON SAYING: "In the days ahead the United States will work with our partners here in Israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of Israel and improves conditions for the people of Gaza, and moves towards a comprehensive peace for people across the region." Gaza medical officials say 130 people have died in Israeli strikes, mostly civilians, including 31 children. A total of five Israelis have died, including three civilians killed last week.
