    White House Downplays Biden’s Remarks on Israel’s ‘Indiscriminate Bombing’ – By Patsy Widakuswara (VOA News) / Dec 13, 2023

    The White House appears to be walking back President Joe Biden’s harshest public rebuke so far of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and what he described as Israel’s “indiscriminate bombing” in Gaza.

    Israel’s 10-week-old military campaign has killed more than 18,000 people, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

    “The president was reflecting a concern that we have had for some time, and will continue to have as this military operation proceeds, about the need for reducing civilian harm and being as precise and careful and deliberate as possible,” John Kirby, National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications, told VOA during Wednesday’s briefing.

    Kirby was repeatedly pressed by reporters to explain Biden’s comments during a campaign event Tuesday, where he said Israel is losing international support because of the “indiscriminate bombing that takes place.”
