Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced Monday that President Joe Biden will head to Israel on Wednesday in the aftermath of the Hamas terror attacks and the burgeoning Israel-Hamas war.
President Biden will visit Israel on Wednesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced early Tuesday, delivering a strong show of support to a key U.S. ally who has declared war against the terrorist group Hamas after a brutal surprise attack early this month.
Mr. Biden is “coming here at a critical moment for Israel, for the region, and for the world,” Blinken said in remarks during a visit to Israel.
“First, the president will reaffirm the United States’ solidarity with Israel and our ironclad commitment to its security,” Blinken said. “Second, President Biden will underscore our crystal-clear message to any actor, state or non-state, who would try to take advantage of this crisis to attack Israel: Don’t. To that end, he’s deployed two aircraft carrier groups and other military assets to the region.”Top Hunter Biden Prosecutor Needed Authorization From DOJ Tax Division To Bring Charges, Testimony Shows
“Third, the president will continue to coordinate closely with our Israeli partners to secure the release of hostages taken by Hamas, including men, women, small children, Holocaust survivors, and American citizens,” Blinken added.
