Washington DC/IBNS-CMEDIA: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with his actions regarding Gaza, is harming Israel more than helping it, turning the whole world against the Jewish state, US President Joe Biden said.

“He [Netanyahu] has the right to defend Israel, the right to continue to pursue Hamas, but he must, he must, he must pay more attention to the innocent lives being lost as a consequence of the actions taken,” Biden said in an interview to the MSNBC broadcaster.

He said that in his view, Netanyahu “is hurting Israel more than helping Israel by making the rest of the world” go against what Israel stands for, which is a “big mistake.”

The US president noted, however, that Washington has no “red line” regarding Israeli actions in Gaza.

“I will never leave Israel. The defense of Israel is still critical, so there is no red line,” Biden said.
