WH Advisor Jarrett: Attacks on Gaza Hospitals ‘Indefensible’
On Face the Nation Sunday morning, senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett said that Israeli attacks on Gaza schools and hospitals were “indefensible.”
“This is why the ceasefire is so important,” Jarrett said. “It’s a devastating situation. Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself, and we are Israel’s staunchest ally. But you also can’t condone the killing of all of these innocent children.”
“I think everyone involved is frustrated,” Jarrett said. “But you can’t let your frustration get in the way of trying to be a constructive player here, and that’s what [Obama’s] determined to do.”
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg argued that Israel was not striking schools and hospitals, it was striking at Hamas, whose members were hiding out in schools and hospitals.
