Former US President Barack Obama strongly condemned Hamas’s “brazen terrorist attacks” against Israel, expressing support for Israel’s efforts to dismantle Hamas and calling for a just and lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), Obama stated, “All Americans should be horrified and outraged by the brazen terrorist attacks on Israel and the slaughter of innocent civilians. We grieve for those who died, pray for the safe return of those who’ve been held hostage, and stand squarely alongside our ally, Israel, as it dismantles Hamas.”

He further emphasized the importance of striving for a just and lasting peace for both Israelis and Palestinians while acknowledging Israel’s right to defend itself against terror.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Hamas group has threatened to kill the hostages it has taken amidst the ongoing conflict. The war has already led to a significant loss of life, with at least 1,600 deaths reported.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a stern warning to Hamas, and reports suggest that the Israeli government has mobilized 300,000 troops in response.

Netanyahu declared, “Israel is at war. We didn’t want this war. It was forced upon us in the most brutal and savage way. But though Israel didn’t start this war, Israel will finish it.” He pledged that Israel would ensure Hamas regrets its attack and that the price paid by the group will be remembered by them and Israel’s other enemies for years to come.

This article provides an overview of former President Barack Obama’s condemnation of Hamas’s terrorist attacks on Israel, Israel’s determination to dismantle Hamas, and the ongoing conflict between the two sides.
