“FWe were hit on Saturday by an attack of savagery never seen since the Holocaust,” Netanyahu said in a video published by his office.
“Hundreds of massacres, families destroyed in their beds, in their homes, women brutally raped and murdered, more than a hundred kidnappings (…), they took dozens of children, tied them up, burned them and executed them, decapitated soldiers “, added the Israeli leader, in a telephone conversation with the North American head of state.
This Tuesday, Joe Biden unreservedly assumed the role of Israel’s main supporter, guaranteeing that he will help the Jewish State defend itself against “pure evil”.
“There are moments (…) when pure evil strikes the world. The people of Israel have just experienced one of these moments, at the hands covered in blood of the terrorist organization Hamas”, stressed the North American President.
“We must be absolutely clear. We support Israel”, stressed Joe Biden, in the presence of Vice President Kamala Harris and head of diplomacy Antony Blinken, who will visit the Jewish State as a sign of “solidarity and support”.
The Palestinian Islamic group considered Biden’s statements inflammatory and accused the American of wanting to “cover up Israel’s crimes”.
Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israeli territory on Saturday, called operation “Al-Aqsa Storm”, with the launch of thousands of rockets and the incursion of armed militiamen by land, sea and air.
In response to the surprise attack, Israel bombed several Hamas facilities in the Gaza Strip from the air, in an operation it dubbed “Iron Swords”.
During the incursion into Israeli territory, Hamas took more than a hundred civilian and military hostages, which they took to the Gaza Strip.
Israel’s military response, which declared war on Hamas after the attack, caused the deaths of more than 800 people in Gaza, according to the most recent reports.
On the Israeli side, a high-ranking military official said that the death toll exceeded one thousand.
