Multiple US troops in Gaza wounded because of Biden’s failed policies

While Joe Biden and the Left have promised that no American troops would be in harm’s way in the Middle East, it appears that they have lied. And this most recent incident highlights the terrible foreign policies of the Left.

Because now, multiple US troops in Gaza have been wounded and Americans are infuriated.

In a troubling development for President Joe Biden’s administration, three U.S. soldiers were injured, one critically, during an operation aimed at delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza.

This incident underscores the dangers of executing humanitarian missions in conflict zones and raises questions about the efficacy and safety of current U.S. strategies in the region.

On May 23, a U.S. service member sustained a non-combat-related injury aboard the USNS Benavidez (T-AKR 306), which was involved in a mission to supply humanitarian aid to Gaza.

A U.S. defense official confirmed that the critically injured soldier was transported to a medical facility.

“The service member was transported to a medical facility and is in critical condition at this time. More information will be provided as it becomes available,” the official stated.

Two other soldiers were also injured during the operation.

According to a U.S. Central Command official, one soldier suffered an ankle injury while another sustained a back injury.

The critically injured soldier was evacuated to a hospital in Israel for urgent care.

The operation is part of a larger effort to deliver humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, which has been devastated by ongoing conflict. However, the mission has faced significant challenges.

Pentagon spokesperson Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder admitted on Tuesday that none of the 569 tons of aid transported to Gaza since last week has reached the Palestinian people.

“The U.S. military is delivering [the aid] to the causeway. It’s then taken by non-U.S. contractors, driven over onto shore, put into an assembly area, which is where the NGOs that are supporting this effort pick it up and take it for onward distribution,” Ryder explained.

He acknowledged that despite discussions and efforts to establish alternative routes for safe cargo movement, the aid had been intercepted before reaching its intended recipients.

Reuters reported a particularly disheartening incident on Saturday where 16 trucks en route to a warehouse were overrun.

Eleven of these trucks were “cleaned out by Palestinians during the journey through an area that a U.N. official said has been hard to access with humanitarian aid.”

This highlights the severe security challenges and the desperate conditions on the ground.

Maj. Gen. Ryder confirmed during a press conference that the aid was intercepted by individuals who commandeered the supplies from the vehicles.

“Aid was making it in, but none of the aid that has come in from the pier has been distributed to civilians in Gaza,” he said.

The $320 million pier constructed for Gaza’s aid distribution is at risk of becoming another failed initiative under President Biden.

The U.N. World Food Program has expressed concerns that conditions in Gaza are preventing the proper distribution of food and other essentials. The majority of these supplies are being stolen, exacerbating the already dire humanitarian crisis.

As of Thursday, U.S. Central Command reported that 820.5 tons of aid had been offloaded from the pier, with 506 tons successfully reaching a warehouse.

However, it remains unclear if any of these supplies have been distributed to the civilians who desperately need them.

Many people argue that the administration’s handling of the Gaza aid operation is symptomatic of larger strategic failures in U.S. foreign policy.
