It’s reported that at least 230 people have been killed by Israeli airstrikes in Gaza. The IDF also confirmed that an unknown number of Israeli civilians and soldiers are being held hostage by Hamas. Speaking from the White House late Saturday afternoon, President Joe Biden said the U.S. stands with Israel and support is “rock solid.” The president’s comments come after U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, criticized the U.S. Office of Palestinian Affairs for posting a message on social media urging Israel to “refrain from retaliatory attacks.” 

Christians have united in denouncing a significant strike by Hamas on Israel, which led Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to declare, “We are at war.”

Thousands of missiles rained down on Israel from the Gaza Strip in a surprise attack launched across land, sea and air in the early hours of Saturday morning, killing at least 70 and injuring hundreds of civilians, many being treated in hospitals.

Israel has retaliated with airstrikes on Gaza. Israeli officials said 161 people have been killed in the airstrikes and nearly 1,000 injured.

Dozens of Israeli civilians and soldiers have been taken hostage by Palestinian militants. The BBC reports that Hamas claims it has abducted 53 Israelis.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York released a joint statement condemning the attacks and urging all sides to exercise calm.

“We are grieved and deeply concerned at the violence in Israel and Gaza, and we unequivocally condemn the attacks by Hamas,” they said.

“We pray for those who are mourning, those who are injured, and all those fearing for their safety.

“We pray for restraint on all sides, and renewed efforts towards a just peace for all. The way forward must be for both sides to build confidence in a secure future through which Israel and its people can live in security within its internationally recognized borders, and Palestinians have their own state and live in their lands in security, and with peace and justice.”
