US Senator Bernie Sanders, 82, announces that he will seek re-election for another six-year term.

In an eight-minute video posted to social media, Sanders highlights the Israel-Hamas war, sparked by Hamas’s “horrific” attack on October 7.

Sanders says Israel had the right to respond to the onslaught, “but it did not and does not have the right to go to war against the entire Palestinian people, which is exactly what it is doing.”
