Netanyahu ‘overreacted’ by waging war against Hamas last year, Sanders says

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "overreacted" by launching Operation Protective Edge, the Israeli military offensive against the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip last summer, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told Rolling Stone magazine.

Sanders, the Brooklyn-born liberal senator from Vermont, was asked which policy his administration would adopt as it relates to the Middle East.

"The United States will support the security of Israel, help Israel fight terrorist attacks against that country and maintain its independence," the Jewish senator said. "But under my administration, the United States will maintain an even-handed approach to the area."
