US President Joe Biden on Monday stated at the least 11 American residents had been killed throughout ongoing hostilities in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.

“Sadly, we now know that at least 11 American citizens were among those killed—many of whom made a second home in Israel,” Biden stated in a press release, calling it “heart wrenching”.

“We also know that American citizens still remain unaccounted for, and we are working with Israeli officials to obtain more information as to their whereabouts,” he stated.

Biden additionally added that his administration continues to be working to verify and imagine that “it is likely that American citizens may be among those being held by Hamas”.

“I have directed my team to work with their Israeli counterparts on every aspect of the hostage crisis, including sharing intelligence and deploying experts from across the United States government to consult with and advise Israeli counterparts on hostage recovery efforts,” Biden stated.

“The United States and the State of Israel are inseparable partners, and I affirmed to Prime Minister Netanyahu again when we spoke yesterday that the United States will continue to make sure Israel has what it needs to defend itself and its people,” he added.

Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood towards Israel early Saturday, firing a barrage of rockets and infiltrating Israel by land, air and sea. It stated the shock assault was in response to the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem and elevated settler violence towards Palestinians.

In retaliation, the Israeli navy launched Operation Swords of Iron towards Hamas within the Gaza Strip, killing at the least 687 Palestinians and wounding at the least 2,900 others.

At least 900 Israelis have been killed and over 2,600 others wounded within the preventing, in keeping with native media.
