After Biden comments, Netanyahu says determined to continue Gaza op

Netanyahu says that “every day we are hitting more capabilities of the terror organizations, bringing down more terror towers, hitting more weapons caches.”

He does not comment on US President Joe Biden telling him to move towards de-escalation, as per the White House.

He says only that he greatly appreciates Biden’s support of Israel’s right to defend itself, and adds: “I am determined to continue this operation until its goal is achieved — to bring back peace and security to you, the citizens of Israel.”
