No troops to be sent to Israel and Gaza: United States

The United States (US) will not send troops to Israel and Gaza, United States Vice President Kamala Harris said in a statement to a television channel.

"We have no plans or intentions to send troops into Israel or Gaza. And Iran should not be involved," Harris said.

Harris also noted that while Israel has a right to self-defense, Hamas and innocent Palestinian civilians should not be seen as the same.

"Palestinians deserve the same security, stability, and dignity as Israelis," Harris said.

Pointing out the need to adhere to the rules of war in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Harris emphasized the importance of continuing the flow of humanitarian aid to Palestine.


In addition, John Kirby, Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the White House National Security Council, reiterated that they believe that a ceasefire in Gaza at this time would benefit Hamas.

"We do not believe that a ceasefire now is the right answer. We believe that a ceasefire now would benefit Hamas," Kirby said.

The Strategic Communications Coordinator noted that the United States favors a "temporary humanitarian pause" in Gaza, rather than a ceasefire, to facilitate the evacuation of civilians seeking to flee the violence and the delivery of humanitarian aid.


Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called "Al-Aqsa Flood" on the morning of October 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed over 8 thousand people, including 3 thousand 342 children, 2 thousand women, and 397 elderly people, and injured 20 thousand 242 people in its attacks on Gaza.

It was reported that 1400 Israelis, including 306 soldiers, were killed and 5 thousand 132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.

The Israeli army hit Damascus and Aleppo airports. As the Middle East is once again turning into a bloodbath, a deadline has been set for nearly 2 and a half million Palestinians to leave the blockaded Gaza.

In the occupied West Bank, 106 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers.

In Israel's attacks on Gaza, 35 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since October 8, 46 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.

Most recently, Israel attacked the al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza, killing civilians.
