Pro-Palestinian protesters confronted US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller when he exited his vehicle in front of his residence in Washington on Saturday.

“Hey Miller what do you say? How many kids did you kill today?” protesters chanted as the US State Department spokesperson went to his residence after exiting his vehicle.

In the 30-second video, he could be seen waving to the people (not seen in the video) as the protesters continued chanting slogans.

At least 36,439 people have been killed in Gaza territory during more than seven months of fighting between Israel and Hamas, AFP reported while quoting the state’s health ministry.

The toll includes at least 60 deaths over the past 24 hours, a ministry statement said, adding that 82,627 people have been wounded in the Gaza Strip since October 7.

An aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed on Sunday that Israel had accepted a framework deal for winding down the Gaza war now being advanced by US President Joe Biden, though he described it as flawed and in need of much more work.

In an interview with Britain’s Sunday Times, Ophir Falk, chief foreign policy advisor to Netanyahu, said Biden’s proposal was “a deal we agreed to — it’s not a good deal but we dearly want the hostages released, all of them”.
