White House says ’20 or more Americans’ missing after Hamas attack on Israel

Washington (AFP) – White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan says that Washington believes “20 or more Americans” are missing after a surprise attack by militant group Hamas in Israel, adding that this does not mean that all of them are hostages. Hamas are believed to be holding at least 150 hostages in Gaza, mostly Israelis but also foreign and dual nationals. The unprecedented assault has been met with a barrage of air strikes and a total siege of the Gaza Strip.
