Netanyahu tells Biden Israelis ‘will fight with our nails’ if weapons run out

by ian


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his country will defend itself even if the US no longer supports its mission.

The prime minister’s response comes after President Joe Biden’s threats that he will further restrict weapons to Israel should the country choose to invade Rafah on a larger scale. Netanyahu reiterated his unrelenting commitment to defend his country. He said yesterday, “If we have to, we will fight with our nails.”

However, the prime minister also said that he was hoping to come to an agreement with President Biden.

The statement also comes as Israeli delegations have failed to reach another deal with Hamas this week. The terrorist group put the responsibility on Israel, while Israel said that the proposed deal fell short of expectations. This means that Israel could continue its operation in Rafah.
