Policy: Biden met with his National Security Council after the attack broke out, and he later spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by phone.

– I condemn these attacks in the strongest possible terms, says Biden in a statement after the conversation.

Thanks to the help of US forces, Israel was able to shoot down almost all the drones and rockets that were heading towards the country, according to the president.

Furthermore, Biden says that he emphasized to Netanyahu the US’s “unbreakable commitment” to Israel’s security, and that he will gather the leaders of the G7 countries in the hope of putting in place a joint diplomatic response to Iran.
