Tel Aviv, Israel - United States President Joe Biden has revealed those who could be responsible for the attack on a hospital in Gaza.
Biden said that based on what he has seen, the hospital attack appeals like the “other team” carried out the bomb attack and not Israel, Al Jazeera reported.
He stated this while speaking at a news conference after arriving at the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv.
The US president's visit to Israel is said to be for a diplomatic scramble to prevent the Gaza war from spiraling into an even larger conflict.
Biden was received at the Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Isaac Herzog on Wednesday, October 17.
“I was deeply saddened and outraged by the explosion of the hospital in Gaza yesterday, and based on what I’ve seen, it appears as though it was done by the other team, not you.”
“But there’s a lot of people out there not sure, so we’ve got a lot, we’ve got to overcome a lot of things.”
“The world is looking. Israel has a value set like the United States does, and other democracies, and they are looking to see what we are going to do.”
