At cabinet meeting, Netanyahu thanks Biden for UN veto, tank ammo

At the outset of the weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanks US President Joe Biden for his administration’s vetoing of a UN Security Council resolution urging a ceasefire, and for its approval of an urgent shipment of some 14,000 tank shells he says is due to start arriving today.

The premier also says he told the leaders of France and Germany over the weekend that “one can’t support eliminating Hamas on the one hand, and on the other hand pressure us to end the war.”

Netanyahu says the fighting in Gaza is continuing in full force, and that “justice is on our side.”
