On CBS News’ Sixty Minutes, Biden was asked if America’s ally occupied Gaza, would you support it? In response, he said, ‘I think it will be a big mistake.’
He added, ‘Hamas does not represent all Palestinians. However, it is necessary to carry out operations there and expel the extremists.’
The US president said in favor of wiping out Hamas, “The Palestinian Authority is needed for this work.” A Palestinian state needs direction.’He reiterated the US commitment to resolve the issue by establishing two separate states.
Asked if US troops would participate in the Gaza operation, Biden said, ‘I don’t think it’s necessary. Israel has an efficient army. We will help them with whatever they need.’
