Kamala Harris Says US Has No Intention Of Sending Soldiers To Support Israel’s Raid On Gaza

In a recent interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Vice President Kamala Harris emphasized the United States’ commitment to its Middle East policy.

She clarified that the country has no intentions of deploying combat troops to Israel or Gaza. The statement comes amid concerns of a broader regional conflict in the region.

Harris, who has been actively participating in briefings and discussions regarding the Middle East crisis, closely aligned her comments with the administration’s approach.

She expressed support for Israel’s right to self-defense while advocating for the protection of civilians.

“Let me be clear: we have absolutely no intention, nor do we have any plans, to send combat troops into Israel or Gaza, period,” stated Vice President Harris during the interview.

She highlighted the need to separate the actions of Hamas from those of the Palestinian people, underlining the importance of upholding humanitarian principles and providing equal safety, security, self-determination, and dignity to Palestinians.

Addressing the ongoing conflict in Gaza, Harris stated:

“By most estimates, at least 1,400 Israelis are dead. Israel, without any question, has a right to defend itself. That being said, it is very important that there be no conflation between Hamas and the Palestinians. The Palestinians deserve equal measures of safety and security, self-determination and dignity, and we have been very clear that the rules of war must be adhered to and that there be humanitarian aid that flows.”

Over the weekend, President Joe Biden intensified discussions with world leaders, focusing on increasing humanitarian aid to Gaza and protecting civilian lives.

In conversations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, President Biden emphasized the importance of continuing the flow of aid to Gaza and ensuring the well-being of civilians.

The conflict in Gaza has resulted in numerous Palestinian civilian casualties and exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in the region. Despite some aid entering Gaza, it remains insufficient to meet the needs of the 2.2 million people living under the blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt.

As concerns grow about the conflict extending beyond Gaza, Vice President Harris echoed President Biden’s warnings to Iran against involvement.

When asked about the prospect of President Biden not making it to Election Day, Harris dismissed such speculations, stating that she is focused on her job and the upcoming election.

She emphasized the urgency of upholding democracy and affirmed her commitment to her current role, stating, “I, frankly, in my head do not have time for parlor games when we have a president who is running for reelection. That’s it.”
