US President Joe Biden to Visit Israel Tomorrow

President Joe Biden will visit Israel on Wednesday to hold talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, announced Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday.

Blinken said Biden would reaffirm solidarity with Israel, which is expected to launch a ground assault in Gaza.

Biden will make clear that “Israel has the right and indeed the duty to defend its people from Hamas and other terrorists and to prevent future attacks”, Blinken told reporters in Tel Aviv.

He said Israel would brief Biden on its war aims and strategy and on how it would conduct operations “in a way that minimises civilian casualties and enables humanitarian assistance to flow to civilians in Gaza in a way that does not benefit Hamas”.
