Nov. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Israel has the right to defend itself against attacks that he linked to terrorism.

“We have been concerned obviously for some time about the presence of a terrorist group, Hamas, in charge in the Gaza Strip,” Harper said in response to a question today in Quebec City, Quebec. “We condemn this terrorist group’s attacks on Israel, we recognize and support Israel’s right to defend itself against such terrorist attacks, but obviously we urge all sides to take all precautions possible to spare any innocent lives.”
