Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, war cabinet minister and past IDF head Benny Gantz, and war cabinet observer Gadi Eisenkot, also a past IDF head, enter the area in the Tel Aviv hotel where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Joe Biden are meeting.

The war cabinet is scheduled to host Biden once he finishes meeting with Netanyahu, who is also part of the war cabinet managing Israel’s Gaza campaign.

Biden and Netanyahu are still finishing up their one-on-one meeting after making public statements.

Biden is expected to have “tough questions” for Israel, White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby told reporters aboard Air Force One earlier.
