Biden criticises Israel’s Netanyahu for making ‘mistake’ over Gaza

Joe Biden has shared concern over Benjamin Netanyahu’s actions in Gaza, calling them a “mistake”.

The US president expressed his desire for Israel to propose a ceasefire and grant complete access to all food and medicine entering Gaza over the next six to eight weeks during an interview broadcast on Tuesday 9 April.

“I think what he’s doing is a mistake. I don’t agree with his approach,” Mr Biden said of Mr Netanyahu.
