Tensions simmer between Iran and Israel as war devastates Gaza

A spokesperson for the Palestinian Authority president strongly condemned the US House of Representatives’ approval Saturday of a $26 billion aid package for Israel.

The aid will directly correlate to the increasing number of Palestinian casualties, said the spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, according to a statement published by the Palestinian official news agency WAFA.

Abu Rudeineh labeled the aid package a “dangerous escalation” and an act of aggression against the Palestinian people. He said the support gives Israel the green light to broaden its war across the region, and undermines the prospects for regional and global stability.

The aid package passed by the House still faces a vote in the US Senate before being approved.

Back in the US: Protesters have gathered near the Wilmington, Delaware, home of US President Joe Biden — who has backed the aid package — holding signs and chanting, calling for a ceasefire.

One chant that can be heard is “Biden, Biden you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide.” They are also chanting “Biden is a war criminal,” and “Genocide Joe has got to go.”

The president is spending the weekend in Wilmington.
