US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller is asked about President Joe Biden’s recent threat to revoke the visas of violent settlers in the West Bank.

Miller says the Biden administration is considering additional steps to address the ongoing phenomenon, which has seen a major increase since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war.

Miller says during a press briefing that if the Israeli government starts taking steps to hold violent settlers who have been targeting Palestinians accountable, “that’s certainly something we would welcome… and taking into account [as we consider] what kind of [further] actions we might take.”
