US President Joe Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as Israeli-Palestinian violence intensifies. “My expectation and hope is that this’ll be closing down sooner than later,” Biden told reporters at the White House. “But Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory.” Violent clashes erupted this week between Israel and the Palestinians in years. Militant group Hamas repeatedly fired rockets deep into Israel from the Gaza Strip and the Israeli military responding with air strikes. Over 60 Palestinians have been reported killed in Gaza and at least six people in Israel. Watch the full video for more.
