White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby condemns
the “chilling comments” made by senior Hamas official Ghazi Hamad, who

his terror group would carry out similar assaults in the future until
Israel is annihilated.
“That’s what Israel faces,” Kirby tells reporters after Air Force One
landed in Minneapolis.
