Tzipi Livni, Israeli Foreign Minister on Meet The Press: “We are targeting Hamas, we are not looking for civilians to kill more than that. …We are trying to avoid any civil casualty…We are trying to make all the effort in order to target only terrorists and Hamas headquarters and places. But unfortunately, in war, like any war, sometimes also civilian pays the price.”
