After Hamas attacked Israel last October killing about 1,200 and taking a few hundred hostages, over 35,000 Palestinians, including 20,000 women and children, have been killed by Netanyahu’s onslaught in Gaza. 200 aid workers have been killed. Hospitals and schools have been razed. Journalists have been targeted by the IDF, which also targeted UN relief operations. Over a million people face starvation. All due to Israel’s violence and blockade of humanitarian aid. This is what the United States is supporting when it sends money and bombs to Netanyahu. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel #MiddleEast #FromTheRiverToTheSea #WarCrimes #EthnicCleansing
