State Dept Spokesperson Under Fire for ‘Spineless’ Refusal to Condemn Israel’s Killing of Children in Gaza

Asked straightforwardly whether he condemns the killing of Palestinian children, Price replied that the Biden administration does not “have independent confirmation of facts on the ground yet” and is “hesitant to get into reports that are just emerging.”

“Obviously, the deaths of civilians, be they Israeli or Palestinians, are something we would take very seriously,” added Price.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), whip for the Congressional Progressive Caucus, tweeted late Monday that “this unsurprising response is devoid of empathy and concern for human suffering.”

“He can’t even condemn the killing of children,” Omar added.
