Bernie Sanders criticizes Israel’s offensive in Gaza, calls it ‘serious violation of international law’

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., criticized Israel on Wednesday for cutting off electricity, fuel, food and water to residents in the Gaza Strip, calling it a “serious violation of international law.”

“The targeting of civilians is a war crime, no matter who does it. Israel’s blanket denial of food, water, and other necessities to Gaza is a serious violation of international law and will do nothing but harm innocent civilians,” said Sanders.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Monday ordered a “complete siege” on Gaza following the killing and kidnapping of civilians in southern Israel by Hamas terrorist fighters on Saturday. 

“Right now, the international community must focus on reducing humanitarian suffering and protecting innocent people on both sides of the conflict,” he said.
