The Wall Street Journal , citing unnamed U.S. officials, reports that Obama "had a particularly combative phone call" with Netanyahu, "who they say has pushed the administration aside but wants it to provide Israel with security assurances in exchange for signing onto a long-term (ceasefire) deal." The president and prime minister have long had a fractious relationship, and things appear to be even more tense after recent Israeli military operations in Gaza.
