Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have appeared to not take sides in the Israel-Gaza war by condemning "all terrorism and brutality".

It comes a day after King Charles condemned Hamas attacks as “barbaric acts of terrorism”, as he held telephone calls with President Isaac Herzog of Israel.

Under the title "With Heavy Hearts", Harry and Meghan said in a statement on their Archewell Foundation website that they support action to “help all innocent victims of this unconscionable level of human suffering”.

The statement read: “At the Archewell Foundation, with Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, we stand against all acts of terrorism and brutality.

“We are supporting our partners and organisations on the front lines in Israel to provide the urgent aid needed, and to help all innocent victims of this unconscionable level of human suffering.”

On 10 October, the Duke and Duchess hosted Archewell Foundation’s first in-person event that put a focus on families affected by tragic loss connected to their child’s social media use.

They were joined by Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and TV host and board member of Project Healthy Minds Carson Daly, who also moderated the panel.

Every Hamas member is 'a dead man'

Palestinian militant group Hamas launched a surprise incursion on Israel on Saturday and killed hundreds of Israelis.

In response, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s administration retaliated with a bombardment that has demolished neighbourhoods in the Palestinian Gaza Strip and halted the entry of food, water, fuel and medicine into the territory.

Netanyahu made it clear that Gaza would feel the impact of Israel's retaliation for decades to come.

The escalating Israel-Hamas war has already claimed at least 2,400 lives and injured thousands more.
