I support Israel's right to defend itself against attacks from the Gaza Strip, said Joe Biden, US President, APA reports.

"My support for Israel’s security is long-standing and unwavering—including its right to defend itself against attacks," stressed the president.

"Over these recent days, Israel has defended its people from indiscriminate rocket attacks launched by the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the United States is proud of our support for Israel’s Iron-Dome, which intercepted hundreds of rockets and saved countless lives," Biden said.
