Tlaib continued: "The failure to recognize the violent reality of living under siege, occupation, and apartheid makes no one safer. No person, no child anywhere should have to suffer or live in fear of violence."
Since being elected in 2018, Tlaib has used her platform to highlight Palestinian issues and rally support for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions — or BDS — movement against Israel.
The Israeli government also declared its intention to take control of Gaza.
Israeli authorities say at least 700 people have been killed and 1,500 wounded by Hamas' strikes this weekend, with some taken hostage. The Palestinian Health Ministry reports 313 people have been killed and 2,000 injured by Israeli counter-strikes.
Representatives for Tlaib did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.‘
