Biden Supports Israel and Calls for More Aid for Gaza

During a news conference with the Australian prime minister, President Biden reiterated his support for Israel while stressing the need to ensure that humanitarian assistance reaches civilians in Gaza.

“Israel has the right and I would add, a responsibility to respond to the slaughter of their people. And we will ensure Israel has what it needs to defend itself against these terrorists. That’s a guarantee. Hamas does not represent the vast majority of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip or anywhere else. I want to thank the Israeli, the Israelis and the Palestinians, excuse me, and President Sisi of Egypt, for working with the United States to make sure that food, water and medical supplies are getting through to innocent people in Gaza. The flow needs to increase, and we’re working very hard with our partners to make that happen.” “Australia unequivocally condemns the terrorism of Hamas. We grieve for the loss of every innocent life, whether that be Israeli or Palestinian. Today, I announce that Australia will provide an additional $15 million in humanitarian assistance for civilians in Gaza. This adds to the $10 million Australia has already committed, and will help deliver life-saving assistance, such as emergency water, and medical services.”
