The former President of the United States, Barrack Obama has condemned the ongoing war between Israel and Palestinians, praying for the return of those who had been taken hostage by members of the Hamas group, which is a Palestinian militant group.
Obama, who took his X to register his feelings, said: “All Americans should be horrified and outraged by the brazen terrorist attacks on Israel and the slaughter of innocent civilians.
“We grieve for those who died, pray for the safe return of those who’ve been held hostage, and stand squarely alongside our ally, Israel, as it dismantles Hamas. As we support Israel’s right to defend itself against terror, we must keep striving for a just and lasting peace for Israelis and Palestinians alike.”
According to Aljazeera, “Hamas fighters have killed more than 800 Israelis in assaults on multiple towns in southern Israel. In response, Israel has launched a bombing campaign in the Gaza Strip, killing more than 500 Palestinians. It has mobilised troops along the Gaza border, apparently in preparation for a ground attack.”BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
