MSNBC host Joy Reid confronted Israeli official Mark Regev about the high number of casualties, predominantly women and children, resulting from Israel’s bombing campaign in response to a Hamas terrorist attack.

Regev defended Israel’s actions, claiming the goal was to eradicate Hamas and not harm civilians.

He cautioned against trusting numbers from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Health Ministry, which do not differentiate between combatant and civilian deaths. (Trending: Tucker Carlson Reveals ‘Secret’ Project He’s Been Working On For Months)

“How has causing that much death and destruction, 80% of those dead estimated to be women and children, how does that achieve the goal of eradicating Hamas?” Reid asked.

“Joy, can I urge you please to be a little bit circumspect of those numbers,” Regev said.

“They are put out by the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Health in Gaza. And therefore, you have to presume that Hamas has reasons for playing with the numbers,” he added.

“You know that they were very cruel, they have no qualms whatsoever about killing people and innocent civilian civilians.”

“You can presume also they have no qualms about killing the truth,” he said.

“What I’m saying is we have to be very careful with numbers that are put out by Hamas.”

“They would have you believe that they’re all innocent civilians,” Regev pressed.

Reid challenged Regev on Israel’s military tactics, particularly regarding civilian areas and hospitals.

This exchange follows previous clashes between Israeli officials and MSNBC hosts over the Israel-Hamas conflict.
