President Biden arrived in Israel on Wednesday, where he held a brief press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In their remarks, both leaders highlighted the death toll, the atrocities committed by Hamas, and the impact on children in Israel.

Biden also said Israel was not to blame for a rocket attack on a hospital in Gaza, which left at least 500 people dead.

“I was outraged by the bombing of the hospital yesterday. Based on what I’ve seen, it was done by the other team. Not you,” Biden said to Netanyahu. “But there’s a lot of people out there who are not sure.”

Biden added: “The world is looking. Israel has a value set like the United States does and other democracies and they’re looking to see what we’re going to do.”

Netanyahu spoke first during the presser, applauding Biden for being the first U.S. president to visit Israel during a wartime.
