National Edition News cover for July 9, 2014 - Obama backs Israel for time being: Smoke and fire rise from an Israeli missle strike in Rafah, Tuesday, July 8, 2014.

National Edition News cover for July 2, 2014 - Teen deaths stoke Israeli fury toward Palestinians: An Israeli woman holds the national flag with photos of three Israeli teenagers, Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, a 16-year-old with dual Israeli-American citizenship, during their funeral, in the Israeli town of Modiin on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. Tens of thousands of mourners converged Tuesday in central Israel for the funeral service for three teenagers found dead in the West Bank after a two week search and crackdown on the Hamas militant group, which Israeli leaders have accused of abducting and killing the young men. The deaths have prompted angry calls for revenge and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened his security Cabinet for an emergency meeting to discuss a response to the killings, hours after airstrikes targeted dozens of suspected Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.(AP Photo/Oded Balilty)
