WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris said on Tuesday that “the word tragic doesn’t even begin to describe” an Israeli airstrike that triggered a fire in a tent camp in the Gazan city of Rafah, killing 45 Palestinians.

Harris, speaking outside an event in Washington, was responding to a reporter’s question about the weekend airstrike.
