President Biden Acknowledges Distinction Among Palestinians Amid Israel’s Actions

US President Joe Biden acknowledged that the vast majority of Palestinians were not involved in the October 7 attack on Israel.

US President Joe Biden emphasized the distinction between Palestinian citizens and Hamas leaders, acknowledging that most Palestinians were not involved in the October 7 attack on Israel.

“We must not lose sight of the fact that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians had nothing to do with Hamas’s appalling attacks and are suffering as a result of them,” he stated on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter).

Israel’s Ground Invasion Plans:

This statement comes as Israel plans a ground invasion of Northern Gaza. While the US has supported Israel, American troops will not be directly involved in the operation.

US Secretary of State Tony Blinken is scheduled to return to Israel on Monday, shortly after his recent visit to the country. 

As reported by the news agency Reuters, he will meet with Israeli officials to coordinate US support for Israel during its invasion of Northern Gaza.

US Deployment of Naval Forces:

With tensions escalating in the region, the US has deployed two aircraft carrier strike groups to the Eastern Mediterranean. This move warns Iran and other regional powers not to become involved in the conflict.

Casualties and Displacement:

In the eight days since the surprise onslaught by Hamas, which resulted in more than 1,300 Israeli casualties, Israel has responded with a bombing campaign that has claimed over 2,300 lives in Gaza. 

The UN estimates that one million people have been displaced from the Gaza Strip within the war’s first week.

Netanyahu’s Visit to Front-Line Troops:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited front-line troops in the south near Gaza, donning a flak jacket. He expressed readiness for what was to come and stated, “More is coming.”
