Biden, Netanyahu speak in wake of deadly Israeli airstrike on aid workers

United States President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have completed a phone call widely expected to be difficult, with the president reported to be fuming over the Israeli attack that killed seven World Central Kitchen aid workers in Gaza earlier this week.

The two leaders reportedly began speaking around 7 p.m. and talked for some 45 minutes.

The White House has described Biden, who has a close personal relationship with WCK founder Jose Andres, as heartbroken by the attack. Israel has called the incident a “grave mistake” and vowed an in-depth investigation into how it occurred.
