On Saturday, the White House released a readout of the calls between President Joe Biden and both Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
The two calls took place after the destruction of a building in Gaza that allegedly housed a Hamas intel operation, and was home to the offices of the Associated Press and Al Jazeera.
The readout states that, on the call with Netanyahu, Biden “reaffirmed his strong support for Israel’s right to defend itself against rocket attacks from Hamas,” and said that Biden condemns the “indiscriminate” attacks against Israeli cities and towns.
Biden also “raised concerns about the safety and security of journalists” during the call, it says.
The President spoke today with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. The President reaffirmed his strong support for Israel’s right to defend itself against rocket attacks from Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza. He condemned these indiscriminate attacks against towns and cities across Israel. The President updated the Prime Minister on high-level U.S. engagement with regional partners on this issue and discussed ongoing diplomatic efforts. The President noted that this current period of conflict has tragically claimed the lives of Israeli and Palestinian civilians, including children. He raised concerns about the safety and security of journalists and reinforced the need to ensure their protection.
