O President of the United States, Joe Biden, assured this Wednesday that he had seen “verified” images of “terrorists” from Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement) beheading children, thus referring to the massacres that have taken place in the ‘kibbutz’ of Kfar Azza, near the Gaza Strip.
Biden also said that it is “important” for Americans to know what is happening. “I never thought I would see verified images of terrorists beheading children,” he lamented during a meeting with American Jewish leaders.

It should be remembered that the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs said today that it is not in a position, “at this stage”, to confirm the “40 babies murdered” during the massacre perpetrated on Saturday by Hamas men.
Since Tuesday, social media has been full of messages about the “40 murdered babies”, seen as the very example of the barbarity of which the men of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas are guilty, in their offensive against Israel.
Asked by AFP about the number of babies killed in Kfar Aza, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (on which the @Israel account depends) told AFP: “At this stage, we cannot confirm any figures.
According to retired Major General Itai Veruv, “70 armed and trained terrorists” attacked Kfar Aza at around 6:30 am on Saturday, carrying out “a massacre, a disaster”.
Around 400 people lived in Kfar Aza, a farming community two kilometers from the border with the Gaza Strip, before the Hamas attack.
Questioned by AFP, several Israeli soldiers stationed at the site said that more than 100 civilians had died, including an unknown number of children. One of them, who did not want to be identified, spoke of mutilations, including decapitations, but refused to say more.
