In an announcement, the White House stated Biden reiterated what has been his essential message to this point: “his firm support for Israel’s right to defend itself against indiscriminate rocket attacks.”
Biden “encouraged Israel to make every effort to ensure the protection of innocent civilians,” the assertion stated.
