In connection with the aggravation of the situation in the Gaza Strip, US President Joe Biden held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, CNBS reported.

During the phone talks, Biden confirmed Israel's right to self-defense against rocket attacks by Hamas militants and condemned attacks in Israeli cities.

The President noted that the current period of the conflict has tragically claimed the lives of Israeli and Palestinian citizens, including children. He expressed concern about the safety of journalists and stressed the need to ensure their protection, the White House said.

Netanyahu assured Biden that Israel is doing everything not to harm those who are not associated with Hamas.
He noted that before the start of the operation, in particular to launch missile strikes on a building in the Gaza Strip, from the building that housed the offices of the Associated Press and Al Jazeera, everyone who is not involved in Hamas' activities was evacuated.

After talking with Biden, Netanyahu said that Israel will continue its operations until it reaches its goal.
