Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks during a joint news conference with Britain's Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond (not pictured) in Jerusalem July 24, 2014. Israel won a partial reprieve from the economic pain of its Gaza war on Thursday with the lifting of a U.S. ban on commercial flights to Tel Aviv, as fighting pushed the Palestinian death toll over 700.
