Dem senator admonishes Israel over ‘unacceptable’ Gaza civilian death, urges immediate strategy change

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., took to social media Thursday to admonish Israel for what he called an “unacceptable and unsustainable” rate of civilian death amid its ongoing invasion of Gaza, and urged the country to “immediately reconsider its approach” to destroying Hamas.

“It’s time for Israel’s friends to recognize that the current approach is causing an unacceptable level of civilian harm and does not appear likely to achieve the goal of ending the threat from Hamas,” Murphy said in a lengthy statement posted on X.

“As we have learned from America’s own counterterrorism campaigns, disproportionately large numbers of civilian casualties come with a moral cost, but also a strategic cost, as terrorism groups feed off of the grievances caused by civilian harm,” he said.
