Israel has the right to defend its country and its people: Biden after Hamas terrorist attacks

The Hamas attack erupted amid efforts by Biden and his team to broker a normalization deal between Israel and Saudi Arabia as well as a U.S.-Saudi defense pact.

Washington: US President Joe Biden said on Saturday that the United States was ready to offer “all appropriate means of support” to Israel after an attack by the pro-Iran group Hamas and warned “any other party hostile to Israel” not to take advantage of it.

The attack by the Palestinian Islamist group came amid efforts by Biden and his team to broker a normalization deal between Israel and Saudi Arabia and a U.S.-Saudi defense pact.

Biden spoke by phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday to offer U.S. support, as scenes of violence played out on U.S. news networks. The two leaders have had strained relations but met in New York last month in a show of solidarity.

“I have made it clear to Prime Minister Netanyahu that we stand ready to offer every appropriate means of support to the government and people of Israel,” Biden said in a statement released after their call.

“Israel has the right to defend itself and its people. The United States warns against any other party hostile to Israel seeking to take advantage of this situation,” Biden added.

The message from Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh was broadcast on Al-Aqsa television, run by the terrorist group.

Gaza City: Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said Saturday that the Palestinian group was “on the brink of a great victory” after launching a surprise attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip.

“We are on the eve of a great victory and a clear conquest on the Gaza front,”

Haniyeh said in a speech broadcast on Hamas-run Al-Aqsa television.

“Enough is enough, the cycle of intifadas (uprisings) and revolutions in the battle to liberate our (Palestinian) land and our prisoners languishing in the (Israeli) prisons of occupation must be completed.”
