Obama: Americans ‘stand squarely alongside our ally, Israel, as it dismantles Hamas’

Jacob Magid is The Times of Israel's US bureau chief

Former US president Barack Obama weighs in on Hamas’s attack on Israel for the first time, tweeting that “All Americans should be horrified and outraged by the brazen terrorist attacks on Israel and the slaughter of innocent civilians.”

“We grieve for those who died, pray for the safe return of those who’ve been held hostage, and stand squarely alongside our ally, Israel, as it dismantles Hamas,” he writes.

“As we support Israel’s right to defend itself against terror, we must keep striving for a just and lasting peace for Israelis and Palestinians alike,” he adds.
