US President Joe Biden referred to the war in the Gaza Strip at a fundraising event in New York, saying that "there are too many innocent victims - Israelis and Palestinians. 

We must get more food, medicine and supplies for the Palestinians." Biden emphasized that "we cannot forget that the very existence of Israel is at stake. Israelis were massacred. Imagine if this happened in the U.S. It is understandable that Israel has such deep anger. But we must stop the war effort that causes the significant death of innocent civilians."
