Washington D.C./17.10.23/Turan:  U.S. President Joe Biden will travel to Israel on Wednesday, October 18, to "demonstrate his steadfast support for Israel in the face of Hamas’s brutal terrorist attack and to consult on next steps," as the White House put it on Monday, TURAN's Washington correspondent reports.

Biden will then travel to Amman, where he will meet with King Abdullah, Egyptian President Sisi, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

He will reiterate that Hamas does not stand for the Palestinian people’s right to dignity and self-determination and discuss the humanitarian needs of civilians in Gaza, according to the White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

“We’ve been crystal clear about the need for humanitarian aid to be able to continue to flow into Gaza,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters during a Monday night conference call. “That has been a consistent call by President Biden and certainly by this entire administration.”

The trip comes as the Pentagon has reportedly decided to put troops on standby signals to deploy in support of Israel. About 2,000 such troops were chosen last weekend to be ready to assist with advising and medical support, according to media reports.

Biden won’t put any conditions on the military assistance the U.S. is providing to Israel, Kirby told reporters.

On escalation by Iran, Kirby said: "We haven't seen an indication that's necessarily in the offing right now, but we are watching it very, very closely.”
