An Indian working with the United Nations was killed in Gaza when the vehicle he was travelling in came under attack in Rafah. Meanwhile, the White House has said that President Joe Biden's administration does not view the killings of Palestinians in Gaza by Israel in its war with Hamas as genocide.

ISRAEL-HAMAS WAR: THE LATEST

US national security adviser Jake Sullivan has said that President Joe Biden's administration does not view the killings of Palestinians in Gaza by Israel in its war with Hamas as genocide. Sullivan said the United States wants to see Hamas defeated. He also said that Palestinians caught in the middle of the war were in "hell" and that a major military operation by Israel in Rafah would be a mistake. Sullivan expressed concern about reports of Israeli settlers attacking a humanitarian aid convoy on its way to Erez Crossing in northern Gaza, the second such incident in less than a week.
