US President Joe Biden has pledged support to Israel and warned any party hostile to Israel not to take advantage following an attack by the pro-Iran group Hamas. Biden’s statement comes as efforts are underway to negotiate a normalization agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia, as well as a US-Saudi defense pact.

Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the phone to offer US support. The two leaders, who have had strained relations in the past, met in New York last month to show solidarity.

In a statement, Biden said, “I made clear to Prime Minister Netanyahu that we stand ready to offer all appropriate means of support to the government and people of Israel. Israel has a right to defend itself and its people. The United States warns against any other party hostile to Israel seeking advantage in this situation.”

The attack by Hamas has garnered attention on American news networks, and Biden’s statement reaffirms the US’s commitment to Israel’s security.
