State Department Ups Number of Americans Killed in Israel to 30


The United States State Department has reported that 30 Americans have been killed in Israel since October 7, when Hamas militants launched a surprise offensive over the border amid a large-scale rocket attack campaign.

The number was revised from 29, which was reported on Saturday.

In a statement, a State Department spokesperson said that “The U.S. government is working around the clock to determine their whereabouts and is working with the Israeli government on every aspect of the hostage crisis, including sharing intelligence and deploying experts from across the United States government to advise the Israeli government on hostage recovery efforts.”

The State Department also reported that at least 13 Americans are also considered missing, but it remains unclear if any are amongst those taken hostage by Hamas and brought back over the border into Gaza.
