Hillary Clinton says Donald Trump and Ted Cruz "missed the mark" when they described their posture toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Trump has recently suggested that he'll be "sort of a neutral guy" in the dispute. Cruz, meanwhile, says he has, "no intention of being neutral" in his support for Israel.

The former secretary of state suggested on CNN's "State of the Union" that the situation is far more complex.

She pledged to defend and do everything she can to support Israel, but adds, that "the Palestinians deserve to have a state of their own. That's why I support a two-state solution."
