Biden previously held a conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In the message, the President of the United States saluted the first two convoys of humanitarian aid that crossed the border into Gaza and are being distributed to the Palestinians, according to the White House. The leaders stated that “there will now be a continued flow of this vital aid into Gaza.” Biden also thanked Israel for its support in facilitating the release of the two American hostages.

Biden and Netanyahu agreed to remain in close contact.
