VP Kamala Harris ‘Honors’ Death of Palestinians in Rescue Mission That Saved Four Israeli Hostages

Vice President Kamala Harris recognized the death of Palestinians who were killed in a rescue mission that saved four Israeli hostages.

“Before I begin, I just say a few words about the morning which I know weighs heavily on all of our hearts,” she said in an address over the weekend.

“On Oct. 7, Hamas committed a brutal massacre of 1,200 innocent people and abducted 250 hostages,” she continued. “Thankfully, four of those hostages were reunited with their families tonight. And we mourn all of the innocent lives that have been lost in Gaza, including those tragically killed today.”

Israel announced over the weekend that they rescued the four hostages in “good medical condition.”

Israel’s army said it rescued Noa Argamani, Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov, and Shlomi Ziv, in a complex daytime operation in the heart of Nuseirat.

The military said it attacked “threats to our forces in the area” in an effort to rescue the hostages.

Harris claimed the current administration was working “every day” to end “suffering” for Palestinian people and Israel brings home every hostage.

“We have been working every day to bring an end to this conflict in a way that ensures Israel is secure, brings home all hostages, ends ongoing suffering for Palestinian people and ensures that Palestinians can enjoy their right to self-determination, dignity and freedom,” she added. “As President Biden said last week, it is time for this war to end.”
