SOON: Biden to address the Hamas-Israel war for the second time

US President Joe Biden will address the fighting between Israel and Hamas that has continued for the fourth day straight since the Islamist militant group carried out one of the deadliest terror attacks in Israel’s history.

At least 900 people are dead in Israel, according to the Israel Defense Forces. Tel Aviv has responded with an overwhelming number of airstrikes on Gaza, the 140 square-mile densely populated territory controlled by Hamas, leaving at least 830 people dead there and displacing more than 137,000.

This will be the second time Biden will address the situation. Sources familiar with his prepared remarks say he will not urge Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to exercise restraint.
