Israel’s bombardment and siege on Gaza has entered its 102nd day. Palestinian health officials say Israeli attacks have killed 158 civilians in Gaza over the past 24 hours, bringing the death toll to over 24,000. The dead include more than 10,000 children.

On Sunday, President Biden released a statement marking 100 days since the October 7 Hamas attack. In the statement, Biden decried Hamas for continuing to hold more than 100 hostages, but Biden made no mention of the tens of thousands of Palestinians killed, injured or displaced during Israel’s indiscriminate assault.
