As many as four American citizens are confirmed to have been killed during the terrorist attack in Israel over the weekend, which has claimed over 700 lives.

Confirmation of the dead Americans came on Sunday after U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the Biden administration had been “working overtime” to verify reports of missing and dead Americans in the midst of Hamas launching an unprecedented attack on Israel.

Four Americans have been killed in the attacks in Israel close to the Gaza border and the death toll is expected to rise, sources familiar with a Sunday briefing to key House committees told CNN.

“We have reports that several Americans were killed. We’re working overtime to verify that. At the same time, there are reports of missing Americans and there again, we’re working to verify those reports,” Blinken told CNN’s Dana Bash.

CNN later learned from key House committees that four Americans were killed.

Israeli Minister of Strategic Affairs Ron Dermer also told CNN on Sunday that Hamas has taken American hostages among the scores of Israeli hostages in their grasp.
