President Joe Biden said he would support a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas during a Monday phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
It's the most significant U.S. step yet to end their violent conflict.
“The President expressed his support for a ceasefire and discussed U.S. engagement with Egypt and other partners towards that end,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement describing the call.
