On Wednesday, President Joe Biden supported the Israeli government’s claims that it was not responsible for the fatal explosion at a hospital in Gaza that killed over 500 people on Monday.

Biden announced an agreement with Israel to authorize aid for the besieged strip.

The agreement will provide resources to two million Gaza residents, who are currently struggling without food, water and power.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel stated that supplies of food, water and medicine will be permitted to enter from Egypt to the citizens in southern Gaza.
