AOC: Biden Must Suspend Israeli Aid After “Indefensible Atrocity” in Rafah

Source: Common Dreams

“Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is among those calling for President Joe Biden to immediately suspend all U.S. military aid to Israel as she called Sunday night’s bombing of a ‘tent zone of innocents’ in Rafah ‘an indefensible atrocity.’ In a statement posted to X on Monday, the New York Democrat said the bombing by the Israel Defense Forces (which killed an estimated 45 people and wounded hundreds more, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health) ‘was done in open defiance of President Biden’s red line and the [International Court of Justice’s] call for a cease-fire. It is long past time for the president to live up to his word and suspend military aid.'” (05/28/24)
