Israel is facing mounting international pressure over the human cost of its war with Gaza’s Hamas rulers but is working to expand its “window of legitimacy”, its top diplomat said Monday.

“We have two or three weeks until international pressure really steps up but the foreign ministry is working to broaden the window of legitimacy, and the fighting will carry on for as long as necessary,” Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said, as quoted by his spokesman.
