President Joe Biden travels to Israel with the mission of supporting its fight against Hamas while addressing the mounting humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Biden aims to re-engage his commitment to Israel's security while looking forward to helping civilians in Gaza.

He has a scheduled itinerary that includes talks with the leaders of Jordan and Egypt. The US warns Iran against any escalation of the conflict as two US aircraft carrier strike groups are assigned to curb aggression by Iran and Hezbollah.
