This horror is Biden’s doing. This illegitimate administration will sell them down the river if Iran commands.
The Foreign Ministry of Thailand said Sunday that 11 of its nationals had been abducted during the fighting in southern Israel and brought to Gaza. Meanwhile, Nepal’s ambassador in Israel confirmed that 17 Nepalese agriculture students were caught up in the fighting, and 11 of them sustained injuries.
In addition to the hostages, two Thai nationals died in the violence, Thailand’s prime minister said Sunday. He did not share further details, but said Thailand’s foreign ministry was working to evacuate its nationals from the country.
Earlier, Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Manet confirmed the death of a Cambodian student who was in the country when the violence erupted.
Happening Now: US Citizens are among the victims and citizens taken hostage in Gaza. Hamas hasn’t specified any ransom yet. We can only assume they’ve been directed by their financier Iran on taking American hostages after it worked so well for them.

CNN reported earlier Sunday that at least three Americans were killed, according to an internal US government memo. The memo said the State Department was aware of additional Americans who have not been accounted for.
CNN has reached out to the State Department for comment.
Israeli Minister of Strategic Affairs Ron Dermer told Bash Sunday that Americans are among the “scores” of hostages being held in Gaza.
The US Embassy in Jerusalem, meanwhile, updated its contingency planning “for any potential evacuation by land or air,” according to the memo. On Saturday, the embassy issued a “shelter in place” order for its personnel.
If they have Americans, it has suddenly become America’s fight.
It has suddenly become our war, and I’m not happy about that.
I don’t pretend to be America First if you’re going to let Third World savage, rape torture in murder Americans.

The Hamas strategy of kidnapping foreign citizens appears particularly sinister. Multiple Nepalis have been kidnapped and Thailand has just confirmed 11 Thais have been taken hostage as well. It is very likely more countries will confirm that their citizens have been taken…
