US Senator Chris Van Hollen (Democrat-Maryland) accuses Israel of war crimes in its operation in the Gaza Strip during comments on the Senate floor.
“Kids in Gaza are now dying from the deliberate withholding of food,” he says. “That is a war crime. It is a textbook war crime. And that makes those who orchestrate it war criminals.”
“So now the question is what will the United States do?” he continues. “What will we do? What will President Biden do? President Biden must take action in response to what is happening.”

Van Hollen says that “first and foremost the president must demand that the Netanyahu government” allow more aid into Gaza, and until that happens, Biden must cut off all aid to Israel.
