US Vice President Kamala Harris joins President Joe Biden in expressing concern about the events in Israel.
Speaking to reports during a visit to Africa, Harris is asked if she has confidence in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ability to safeguard democracy in Israel.
Harris does not answer the question directly but notes the close ties between the US and Israel that “also relate to shared principles in terms of the importance of democracy.”
She is then asked if she is concerned about the situation in Israel.
“I am,” she replies. “We are all watching it.”
