Netanyahu says Biden’s vow to withhold weapons from Israel would result in civilian casualties

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says in a new interview that President Biden’s pledge to withhold weapons from Israel will force the Jewish state to use less accurate weapons, resulting in civilian casualties in the Gaza Strip. He said it would be.

“We’re making an incredible effort, doing everything we can to displace people. But I also think it’s a precision weapon, a precision weapon. So it’s actually causing civilian casualties. If you want to avoid, you need these weapons, not ‘inaccurate weapons,”’ Netanyahu told Dr. Phil after pointing out that Hamas terrorists were hiding in populated areas.

Biden recently said he would not release weapons if Israel moves forward with its invasion of Rafah, Hamas’ last stronghold in the Gaza Strip. Israel is conducting military operations in Rafah, but Biden says it has not yet crossed the red line to enter “populated areas.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to eradicate Hamas even if it means losing his ally Israel.

“I’ve known Joe Biden for many years, more than 40 years. You know, we often agreed, but we also had our disagreements. We were able to overcome them. I hope we can overcome them now,” Prime Minister Netanyahu said.

“But we’re going to do what we have to do to protect our country, to protect our future,” Netanyahu continued during his interview with Dr. Phil. “And that means we will defeat Hamas, including Rafah. We have no other choice.”

As the conflict escalates, many Palestinians have established tent cities and makeshift shantytowns on the outskirts of Rafah. The Israeli government’s determination to enter Rafah has been unpopular with Western countries, which have repeatedly called for the operation to be avoided due to the potential loss of civilian life.

“Civilians are being killed in Gaza as a result of bombs and other attacks on populated areas,” Biden told CNN’s Erin Burnett in an interview broadcast Wednesday.

“I think if they go into Rafah, they haven’t gone into Rafah yet, even if they go into Rafah, historically they have been used to deal with cities, to deal with Rafah. We’ve made it clear that we’re not going to supply the weapons that have come to the United States. We’re going to address that issue,” Biden said.

A senior U.S. government official told The Associated Press that the detained shipment was supposed to consist of 1,800 2,000-pound bombs and 1,700 500-pound bombs.

Anti-Israel protests have erupted across the United States, with chants like “Massacre Joe” often heard, especially on college campuses.
