Vice President Kamala Harris appeared to suggest on Saturday that Israel is intentionally killing civilians in Gaza, although she admitted she does not know “exactly who was killed.”
Asked by a reporter about Hamas claims that Israel killed 200 Palestinians in the first day after the temporary ceasefire collapsed, Harris replied: “I don't have the details to tell you exactly who was killed, but I will say it. We have been very clear where we stand on this, which is that the lives of innocent civilians should not be deliberately targeted and that Israel must do more to protect innocent life in Gaza and innocent civilians in Gaza”.
REPORTER: “Israel killed 200 Palestinians, according to the [Hamas-controlled] Gaza Ministry of Health…Is that acceptable?”

The comment sparked instant backlash at X, as users slammed the vice president for what they believed was a response steeped in ignorance.
“It's literally your job to have the details,” said one user.
“This is what a box of rocks looks like when being interviewed,” noted another.
“She's qualified, at best, to teach us how to make nachos in a deep fryer on TikTok,” declared a third.

How BizPac Review The Israel Defense Forces have reportedly accused Hamas of violating international rules of war by using battlefield ambulances to transport Hamas terrorists and using “human shields” in a hospital under which they built a vast underground command center.
And, as many were quick to point out, it was Hamas who intentionally targeted Israeli citizens when they attacked on October 7th.
“Israel did not start this war!” exclaimed one user on X. “Israel is now telling Gaza which buildings to target. The flyers are launched long before the attack, giving innocent people plenty of time to leave the area. IDF ground troops are eliminating Hamas, not innocent people! Israel IS NOT TO BLAME!” tr

Also on Saturday, Harris “reiterated that under no circumstances will the United States allow the forcible relocation of Palestinians from Gaza or the West Bank, the siege of Gaza, or the redrawing of Gaza's borders,” according to a statement released by the White House after a meeting between the vice president and Egypt's president Abdel Fattah el-Sissi in Dubai.
“The vice president discussed U.S. ideas for post-conflict planning in Gaza, including reconstruction, security, and governance efforts,” the statement continued. “He stressed that these efforts can only succeed if they are carried out in the context of a clear political horizon for the Palestinian people towards a state of their own led by a revitalized Palestinian Authority and have significant support from the international community and of the countries of the region.”
Gaza, Harris stressed, cannot be controlled by Hamas.
This, he made clear, would be “unsustainable for Israel's security, the well-being of the Palestinian people and regional security.”
