Speaking to Fox News Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that he hasn’t spoken to US President Joe Biden since he “described our military response as exaggerated.”

On Thursday night, Biden said Israel’s Gaza campaign is “over the top.”

The two leaders are slated to speak later today, according to Israeli media reports.

Netanyahu also insists in the interview that toppling Hamas and bringing all the hostages home “are not mutually exclusive,” and that the way to get them back is through a “sustained military effort.”
