Biden addresses U.S. on Israel/Hamas war

Summary of events from BBC News:

  • US President Joe Biden has delivered a televised speech on the U.S. response to Hamas’s attack against Israel.
  • He said he will ask U.S. Congress for billions of dollars in funding for Israel and Ukraine, saying abandoning the US allies was “just not worth it”.
  • But he urged Israeli leaders to learn from U.S. mistakes after the 9/11 attacks and to avoid being “blinded by rage”.

  • Gaza remains under siege, with Israel blocking supplies of water, electricity, food and fuel across its border.
