Bernie Sanders on Gaza Violence: 'Israel Overreacted'”

Sen. Bernie SandersBernard (Bernie) SandersSunday shows preview: Trump escalates Cabinet shake-up Sanders condemns killing of Palestinian protesters The Hill's 12:30 Report MORE (I-Vt.) said Sunday he will work against any Veterans Affairs nominee who supports privatizing the agency. The tweet garnered 26,000 likes.

He added, "I think it's a hard situation, but my assessment is that Israel overreacted on that, but again the bottom line here is that the United States of America has got to be involved in dealing with the awful tragedy in Gaza whether it is Syria, whether it's Yemen or Gaza".

IDF troops retaliated mostly with less-lethal riot dispersal means, namely tear gas and rubber bullets, but in some cases used live fire.

The comments from Sanders come after Trump announced Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, who now serves as the presidential physician, would replace David ShulkinDavid Jonathon ShulkinSunday shows preview: Trump escalates Cabinet shake-up GOP Sen: Trump "needs to understand" effect of firing people on Twitter White House asserts Shulkin "resigned" from VA post MORE as the Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

Fifteen Palestinians were killed and scores more were wounded, as tens of thousands of Gazans marched on Israel's border fence on Friday.

Israel has since said that 10 of those killed were active members of Hamas' armed wing and two other militant groups, while Hamas has acknowledged that five of the dead were members of its armed wing.

Meanwhile, the situation in Gaza remains a humanitarian disaster. "We're gonna continue to see those kinds of demonstration and protests", he said in the interview.
