Senior State Department official resigns over Gaza situation

A senior official in the US State Department announced her resignation today due to the crisis situation in Gaza and the US handling of it.
The Washington Post quoted US officials as confirming the resignation of a senior State Department official on Tuesday because of the war in Gaza, saying: “Stacey Gilbert, who resigned from the State Department, worked in the department’s Office of Population, Refugees and Immigration.”
It quoted a State Department spokesman as saying: “We have made it clear that we welcome diverse perspectives and believe that makes us stronger.”
The reason for the resignation is unusual because it involves internal opposition over a controversial report that the Biden administration relied on to justify continuing to send billions of dollars in weapons to Israel.
Stacey Gilbert is the second official to resign from the State Department over the Gaza war after Josh Paul, who said the Biden administration would do anything to avoid the truth.
