US President Joe Biden confirmed Wednesday that the American death toll following Hamas’ attack on Israel has climbed to 31 people.

“The terrorist group Hamas has slaughtered, it has been pointed out, over 1,300 people and it is not hyperbole to suggest slaughtered, slaughtered — including 31 Americans — and they’ve taken scores of people hostage, including children,” he said.

Following his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Biden is set to hold a wider meeting with Israel’s war Cabinet.
