The 76-year-old said he has been left 'furious and bewildered'

Celebrity magician Uri Geller has offered a staggering insight into the scenes in Tel Aviv, Israel after Hamas attacks left 70 dead.

Speaking on GB News, the 76-year-old said he has been left “furious and bewildered” by the actions which prompted Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to declare war.

The country’s emergency services confirmed the official number of Israelis killed in today’s Hamas attack rose from 40 to 70.

"The wounded are actively being evacuated in ambulances, mobile intensive care vehicles, and MDA-Hatzola Air helicopters to various hospitals," it added in a statement.

In a defiant statement on GB News, Geller said the Israelis can “handle everything”.

“Many people, maybe even children were kidnapped and maybe taken into Gaza”, he said.


“I think this war will be won. You can hear the explosions.

“You can hear incoming rockets being brought down. A plane takes minutes to be over the Gaza border. In my opinion, people around are stunned by the attack.

“I’m furious and bewildered. I’m sad for the people who were murdered and the families who are suffering.

“There are still terrorists in the settlement and Israeli commander units are going around now trying to save people who are trapped in their own homes.”

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has spoken out on the attack, saying Israel has a “right to defend itself”.

The UK Prime Minister said the Government is in contact with Israeli authorities after Hamas sent fighters across the border and fired thousands of rockets in what it said was a new operation.

Israel’s premier Benjamin Netanyahu said the group would “pay a price that it hasn’t known until now” as he called up reservists.

And at least 198 people have been killed and 1,610 wounded in Gaza in Israeli retaliation, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Sunak, writing on X, said: “I am shocked by this morning’s attacks by Hamas terrorists against Israeli citizens.

“Israel has an absolute right to defend itself.

“We’re in contact with Israeli authorities, and British nationals in Israel should follow travel advice.”

The White House said that it “unequivocally condemns” the Hamas attacks.

National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said: “There is never any justification for terrorism.

“We stand firmly with the Government and people of Israel and extend our condolences for the Israeli lives lost in these attacks.

“National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan has spoken to Israeli national security adviser Tzachi Hanegbi and we remain in close contact with our Israeli partners.”
