US President Joe Biden clarifies that while he is “not walking away from Israel’s security. We’re walking away from Israel’s ability to wage war in [populated] areas.”

Asked in a CNN interview if Israel has crossed his red line regarding its conduct in Gaza, Biden says “not yet,” but notes that last week he held up the transfer of thousands of 2,000 and 500-pound bombs to Israel due to concerns they could be used in Rafah.
