White House says Gaza crush a ‘serious incident,’ mourns loss of innocent life, dire situation

Following the deadly crowd crush in north Gaza earlier today, the White House laments the “serious incident” and says the US mourns “the loss of innocent life and recognize the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza, where innocent Palestinians are just trying to feed their families.”

The incident, says a spokesperson for the US National Security Council in a statement, “underscores the importance of expanding and sustaining the flow of humanitarian assistance into Gaza, including through a potential temporary ceasefire. We continue to work day and night to achieve that outcome.”
