Bahrain’s Crown Prince, Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, told reporters on Friday that the United States is “indispensable” in creating peace between Israel and Gaza.

On October 7, Hamas led the deadliest Palestinian militant attack on Israel in history. Israel subsequently launched its heaviest-ever airstrikes on Gaza. Israeli officials have said that 1,200 people in Israel were killed in Hamas’ attack, according to the Associated Press, while over 11,500 Palestinians have been killed since Saturday, officials from the health ministry in Gaza said, the AP reported. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said his country is “at war” and has cut off supplies of food, fuel, electricity and medicine into Gaza.

As Israeli forces continue to target Hamas in northern Gaza, the Crown Prince has condemned both Hamas and Israel for their actions.

“This is an intolerable situation, and we must do everything in our power to stop it. I condemn Hamas, unequivocally,” he said Friday ahead of the annual Manama Dialogue security summit. “The attacks on October 7 were barbaric. I unequivocally condemn the air campaign that resulted in the death of over 11,000 people in Gaza, 4,700 of which are children.”
