Biden calls on all sides to uphold truce after Gaza strikes

United States President Joe Biden urged, in a statement, all sides in the latest conflict in Gaza to uphold the principles of the ceasefire, which was previously agreed upon between Israel and the Islamic Jihad, with Egypt as the mediator.

"Over these last 72-hours, the United States has worked with officials from Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Qatar, Jordan, and others throughout the region to encourage a swift resolution to the conflict," said Biden, thanking President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi and the senior Egyptian officials "who played a central role in this diplomacy."

Biden underlined his support for Israel's security remains "long-standing and unwavering—including its right to defend itself against attacks." He also emphasized that the US will continue to be engaged with Israel and Palestine in order to improve the safety and quality of life in the region, for both.
