Biden says he has ‘no confidence’ in Gaza death toll

US President Joe Biden said he had “no confidence in the number that the Palestinians are using” when asked whether Israel was doing enough to “minimise civilian casualties” in a press conference earlier.

“I have no notion that the Palestinians are telling the truth about how many people are killed. I’m sure innocents have been killed, and it’s the price of waging a war,” Biden told reporters on Wednesday.

“The Israelis should be incredibly careful to be sure that they’re focusing on going after the folks that are propagating this war. And it’s against their interest when that doesn’t happen. But I have no confidence in the number that the Palestinians are using,” he added.

The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza says that over 6,500 people have now been killed since 7 October, including more than 2,700 children.
