Biden blasts 'brazen attack' and backs Israel's security

President Joe Biden has condemned what he called a “brazen attack” by Hamas on Israel and has reiterated his support for Israel’s right to defend itself.

In a statement released on Thursday, President Biden expressed his solidarity with Israel in the face of ongoing rocket attacks from Gaza. He stated that Israel has a right to defend itself against such attacks and that the U.S. fully supports Israel’s security.

The recent escalation of violence in the region began earlier this week when Hamas, the militant group that controls Gaza, began firing rockets into Israel. In response, Israel launched airstrikes on Gaza, killing several Hamas leaders and militants.

President Biden’s statement comes as the U.S. and other world leaders are calling for a de-escalation of the violence and a return to calm in the region. The President has been in close contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to try to find a solution to the crisis.

The United States has long been a staunch ally of Israel and has provided the country with billions of dollars in military aid over the years. President Biden’s statement reaffirms his commitment to Israel’s security and his support for the country’s right to defend itself.

The President’s strong stance on supporting Israel’s security has been welcomed by many in the Israeli government and by pro-Israel groups in the U.S. However, his statement has also drawn criticism from some progressive Democrats who have called for a more even-handed approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

As the violence continues to escalate in the region, President Biden’s leadership will be crucial in helping to bring about a peaceful resolution to the crisis. His unwavering support for Israel’s security sends a strong message to both Hamas and Israel that the U.S. stands firmly behind its ally in the region.
