US President Joe Biden informs Netanyahu that the US is seeking a truce

WASHINGTON (Monitoring Desk) US President Joe Biden told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he supports a ceasefire in the bloody clashes between Israelis and Palestinians, though he did not go so far as to claim one.

The US President Joe Biden expressed his support for a truce and addressed US engagement with Egypt and other countries toward that end, the White House said in a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

So far, Joe Biden has avoided following other world leaders and a significant portion of his own Democratic Party in calling for an urgent truce in Israel. The White House said in a statement that Biden reinforced his key message, which has been “his strong support for Israel’s right to protect itself against unlawful rocket attacks.

According to the report, Biden stimulated Israel to make every effort to ensure the safety of innocent people. The White House, on the other hand, has refrained from criticizing any part of Israel’s ongoing military attacks, claiming that the US alliance is justified in retaliating aggressively against Hamas rocket volleys. Officials claim that more important viewpoints are communicated in private.
