This afternoon, President Biden and Vice President Harris spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu to provide an update on ongoing U.S. support for Israel. The President explained that he had just been briefed by his national security team. He detailed the U.S. support that had arrived or would soon be on its way to include ammunition, Iron Dome interceptors, the world’s largest aircraft carrier, and other defense materiel.
The President underscored the need for all countries to unequivocally condemn Hamas’s brutal atrocities, which are akin to the atrocities of ISIS from many years ago. The Prime Minister provided an update from Israel and the spirit of the Israeli people as they unite to protect their country and their people against Hamas and all other threats.
The two leaders agreed to speak again in the next few days.
