US President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are currently meeting with the White House national security team in the Situation Room to discuss Afghanistan.

Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Milley, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Director of National Intelligence Avil Haines and Secretary of State Antony Blinken were all seen arriving at the White House this morning, CNN reports.

The Afghanistan issue is likely to overshadow Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s meeting that is scheduled to take place at 10:30 a.m.
