US President Joe Biden warned Israel on Wednesday not to make the same mistakes Washington made during 9/11. Israel is considering the recent attack on Israel by Hamas as its 9/11 moment and Hamas refers to it as Al Aqsa flood.

“I understand. Many Americans understand,” Biden said, comparing the October 7 attack on Israel by Hamas to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, which killed nearly 3,000 people in the US.

“You can’t look at what has happened here… and scream for justice. When you feel that anger, don’t let it affect you. After 9/11, we were angry in the United States. “While we sought justice and got it, we also made mistakes,” Biden said.

The US President’s visit to Israel came after hundreds of people were killed in an explosion at a hospital in the Gaza Strip. There were conflicting claims about who was responsible for the explosion. Hamas immediately blamed the Israeli airstrike, while Israel denied involvement and released a barrage of video, audio and other information saying the blast was caused by a missile misfire by Islamic Jihad, another terrorist group operating in Gaza. There was a reason. However, Islamic Jihad rejected this claim.

Earlier, Biden had claimed that Pentagon data showed that it was probably not an attack by the Israeli military. “Based on what I’ve seen, it appears as if it was done by another team, not you,” Biden told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a meeting. But he said “there were a lot of people” who were not sure what caused the explosion, which sparked protests across the Middle East.

Biden also said Israel had agreed to allow humanitarian aid to enter Gaza from Egypt. Earlier, Israel had cut off the flow of food, fuel and water into the Gaza Strip after a deadly Hamas attack killed nearly 1,400 Israelis.

“Israel has agreed to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance to civilians in Gaza, based on the understanding that there will be inspections and assistance will go to civilians, not Hamas,” Biden said, adding that the US would work with partners. is “moving trucks across the border as quickly as possible”.

Biden also announced an additional $100 million in humanitarian assistance for Gaza and the West Bank.

The Israel–Hamas war began on October 7 and has become the deadliest of the five Gaza wars for both sides. The Gaza Health Ministry said 3,478 Palestinians had been killed and more than 12,000 wounded in the past 11 days. According to Israel, more than 1,400 people have been killed in Israel, and at least 199 others, including children, were captured by Hamas and taken to Gaza.
