  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Israel unleashes wave of airstrikes on Gaza as Biden issues statement supporting ceasefire” – below is their description.

    The Israeli military has launched another heavy wave of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, saying it destroyed militants’ tunnels and the homes of nine Hamas commanders. Early on Tuesday morning, three massive blasts shook Gaza City. Confirmation is being sought as to what caused the explosions. The Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, signalled Israel’s bombardment would continue despite mounting global pressure to stop the bloodshed. After a phone conversation with Netanyahu on Monday afternoon, the US president, Joe Biden, issued a statement expressing support for a ceasefire, but did not say it should be immediate. In the last week, at least 200 Palestinians, including 59 children, have been killed in the attacks by Israel
