Biden, senior U.S. officials condemn strike on building housing media offices in Gaza, reiterate their support for Israel

Speaking to the media today in Washington, DC on Monday, U.S. President Joe Biden said he would shortly be speaking with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, and did not address comments he had made days earlier saying in his opinion, there “has not been a significant overreaction” when it comes to Israel’s aerial bombing campaign against Hamas in Gaza, in his opinion. Speaking in Denmark the same day, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that he had not seen any evidence provided by Israel on suggestions that Hamas was operating out of a building housing media outlets – including the U.S.-based Associated Press – which was destroyed in an Israeli missile strike over the weekend. and speaking during her daily press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters the administration did not view it as “constructive” to revisit the president’s past remarks.
