NORTH MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) – Putting aside partisan politics for the moment, Sen. Marco Rubio, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Debbie Wasserman Schultz will attend a rally this weekend in North Miami Beach in support of Israel.

Hundreds are expected at the Sunday rally at the Michael and Ann Russell Jewish Community Center.

Israel and Hamas agreed to a cease-fire this week after eight days of conflict.

Four Israeli civilians and two soldiers were killed and dozens others wounded by rockets fired from Gaza into residential neighborhoods during the fighting that ended in cease-fire Wednesday night.
Palestinians say 161 people, including dozens of civilians, were killed.

Rubio is being touted as a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2016. Wasserman Schultz is chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.
