US Has No Intention Of Sending Troops To Gaza, Israel: Kamala Harris

New Delhi: US Vice President Kamala Harris has said that Washington will not send troops to Israel or Gaza amid the ongoing conflict and harbours no intention to do so. “We have absolutely no intention, nor do we have any plans, to send combat troops into Israel or Gaza, period,” Harris said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes”.

She batted for Israel’s right to defend itself while calling for the protection of civilians. “By most estimates, at least 1,400 Israelis are dead. Israel, without any question, has a right to defend itself,” Harris was quoted as saying.

The US Vice President, however, pointed out that there should be no “conflation between Hamas and the Palestinians”. “The Palestinians deserve equal measures of safety and security, self-determination and dignity, and we have been very clear that the rules of war must be adhered to and that there be humanitarian aid that flows,” she further added.

The former California attorney general repeated warnings US President Joe Biden gave to Iran. She said the conflict will become wider if Iran gets involved. “Don’t. One word. Pretty straightforward,” Harris said.
