Israel Hamas War: Civilians In Gaza Desperate To Evacuate Amid Fears Of War Expanding

 New York Gov. Kathy Hochul is set to travel to Israel this week as the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip grows more dire.

Civilians in Gaza are desperate to evacuate with aid being blocked at their borders. Food and water supplies are dwindling.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced Biden’s travel plans as Israel prepares for a possible ground attack on the 141-square-mile (365-square-kilometer) territory to root out Hamas militants responsible for what U.S. and Israeli officials say was the most lethal assault against Jews since the Holocaust.

Biden is looking to send the strongest message yet that the U.S. is behind Israel. His Democratic administration has pledged military support, sending U.S. carriers and aid to the region. Officials have said they would ask Congress for upward of $2 billion in additional aid for both Israel and Ukraine, which is fighting Russia’s invasion.

It is unclear whether Biden and Hochul will cross paths during their trips.
