US President Joe Biden is scheduled to arrive in Israel today, marking his visit during a time of escalating conflict in the region, triggered by the devastating explosion at a Gaza hospital that has already claimed the lives of at least 500 individuals. During his visit, President Biden aims to reaffirm the United States’ solidarity with Israel.

Prior to his arrival in Tel Aviv, President Biden engaged in discussions with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Additionally, he was briefed by his national security team to assess the devastating loss of life stemming from the hospital explosion, as confirmed by the White House.

However, the regional summit that was to be hosted by Jordan on Wednesday has been cancelled in response to the tragic hospital attack. President Biden was originally slated to meet with key figures, including Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi.
