Palestinian PM condemns US support for Israel amid rising death toll in Gaza

“We condemn anyone who encourages Israel to continue its killings,” says Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh during a cabinet meeting in Ramallah. Heavy urban battles rage on in the Gaza Strip, more than two months into a war between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas. Hamas militants carried out an unprecedented attack against Israel on October 7, killing about 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and taking around 240 hostages — 137 of whom remain in Gaza, Israeli officials say. Israel vowed to destroy Hamas in response, and began a military campaign in Gaza that has killed at least 18,200 people, mostly women and children, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.
