Biden issues cryptic warning to Iran after admin denies country was involved in Hamas attack: ‘Be careful’
President Biden issued a cryptic warning to Iran after his administration denied that the country was involved in a Hamas rocket attack on Israel.
“Be careful,” Biden said during an address to the press. He did not elaborate on what the warning entailed.
The White House has noted that the US government will not tolerate any attacks by Hamas or other actors against Israel, and said that it was “still evaluating the facts” surrounding the incident. US officials have also been in contact with regional players like Egypt, Jordan, and Qatar in an effort to de-escalate the situation.
The latest incident follows a pattern of escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas in the past few weeks. Both sides have repeatedly exchanged fire, with missile launches from Hamas and air strikes from Israel. In response, the United Nations is calling for an immediate de-escalation of the conflict.
