US "recoils" from global reaction to Israel's actions in Gaza

G7 foreign ministers have voiced support for humanitarian pauses in Gaza but haven't called for a ceasefire.  

Their statement follows a meeting in Tokyo.  

The US maintains it doesn't believe Israeli forces should re-occupy Gaza, while Israel's Prime Minister says Israel will have overall security responsibility for the strip.  

Otago University international relations professor Robert Patman told Mike Hosking that the Americans are recoiling from the world reaction.  

He says many people are questioning the strategic wisdom of what Israel's doing.  

Patman says there's probably not a military solution to a political problem.
