President Biden on Wednesday reassured Israel of full support in defending its citizens following the deadly terror attack by Hamas.
During a meeting with Israel’s war Cabinet, Biden pledged unwavering U.S. support in its conflict with Hamas. “In the wake of Hamas’ appalling terrorist assault – it was brutal, inhumane, almost beyond belief what they did – this Cabinet came together and, standing strong, standing united – I want you to know that you are not alone. You are not alone,” Biden said.
He further stated, “We will continue to have Israel’s back as you work to defend your people. We will continue to work with you and our partners across the region to prevent more tragedies to innocent civilians.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his determination to prevail after the attacks, which resulted in the deaths of 1,400 people, including 30 Americans, and left 3,400 injured since Hamas launched the unprecedented attack on October 7.
“The road to victory will be long and hard, but united in purpose, and with a deep sense of justice, an unbreakable spirit of our soldiers and our people, Israel will prevail,” Netanyahu stated.
