Israel-Gaza war live updates: Israel says forces in ‘heart of Gaza City’; Rashida Tlaib censured over remarks

The U.S. House has voted to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), punishing the only Palestinian American member of Congress over her comments about the Israel-Gaza war. The measure was put forward by Rep. Richard McCormick (R-Ga.), who accused Tlaib of “calling for the destruction of the state of Israel.” During an emotional debate, Tlaib said her past comments have always been directed at the Israeli government. “The idea that criticizing the government of Israel is antisemitic sets a very dangerous precedent,” she said. After a month of war, Israeli forces have reached the “heart of Gaza City,” Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said during a news conference. The Washington Post could not verify his claim.
