Netanyahu calls Biden to thank him for strong speech

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has spoken with US President Joe Biden by phone to thank him after an address unequivocally backing Israel against Hamas terrorism a day earlier.

Netanyahu “thanked the president for his words of strong support after their last conversation yesterday and for his unwavering backing for Israel,” the Prime Minister’s Office says in a statement.

This is the fourth time the two have spoken since Saturday’s attack.

There is no White House statement on the call.
