Biden, senior US officials condemn destruction of media office in Gaza, reiterate support for Israel

Speaking to the media today in Washington, DC on Monday, U.S. President Joe Biden said he would shortly be speaking with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, and did not address comments he had made days earlier saying in his opinion, there "has not been a significant overreaction" when it comes to Israel’s aerial bombing campaign against Hamas in Gaza.

The President later released a statement on his phone call with Netanyahu, saying he had pushed for a cease-fire with the leader of Israel.

Speaking in Denmark the same day, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that he had not seen any evidence provided by Israel on suggestions that Hamas was operating out of a building housing media outlets – including the U.S.-based Associated Press – which was destroyed in an Israeli missile strike over the weekend.

Blinken admonished Israel’s decision while also re-affirming the administration’s position that it has the right to act in "self-defence."

"Israel has a special responsibility to protect civilians in the course of its self-defence, and that most certainly includes journalists," Blinken said.

And speaking during her daily press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters the administration did not view it as "constructive" to revisit the president’s past remarks.

"We are going to take everything we convey, whether it is a statement or an action, it is going to be to the end of de-escalating the situation on the ground," Psaki said.
