Israel-Hamas live: Netanyahu is ‘hurting Israel Causing more Problems than helping Israel’ – Biden showing frustration with Netanyahu

During an exclusive interview with MSNBC, President Joe Biden said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s disregard for “innocent lives” is “hurting Israel more than helping Israel.

” He said a ground invasion of Rafah would be a red line but that he would “never leave Israel,” however, “you cannot continue to have 30,000 more Palestinians dead.”

As part of a plan to surge humanitarian aid into Gaza, the U.S., along with allies, said it will develop a maritime corridor, amid criticism that sending aid by air and sea falls far short of meeting the needs of Gaza’s population of 2.2 million. The maritime corridor could take as long as 60 days to be fully operational.

Canada and Sweden have joined the European Unions to resume funding to UNRWA, the embattled U.N. humanitarian aid agency, in light of the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza and after assurances of more strengthened internal supervision.

16 countries pulled funding after Israel accused a dozen of its 13,000 staff members of participating in the Oct. 7 attacks.

The death toll in Gaza has surpassed 30,900 , according to the Health Ministry, including at least 20 people who have died of starvation. The Israeli military said that at least 247 soldiers have been killed since the ground invasion of Gaza began.
