Asked whether he has raised his concerns with Israel regarding the IDF’s operations around Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, US President Joe Biden says: “I have not been reluctant expressing my concerns with what’s going on.”

“My hope and expectation is that there will be less intrusive action, and we remain in contact with the Israelis,” Biden tells reporters.

The US president adds that there is also a deal being negotiated with Qatar to have a humanitarian pause in Gaza, which will allow for the release of hostages.

“The hostages must be released,” Biden says.
