The White House condemned the firing of rockets at Israel by Hamas and other groups in the Gaza Strip, saying that the Jewish state has the right to defend itself. “Jerusalem, a city of such importance to people of faith around the world, must be a place of coexistence,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said speaking to reporters. Meanwhile, former US president Donald Trump attacks his successor Joe Biden’s “weakness”. “When I was in office we were called the Presidency of Peace, because Israel’s opponents knew that the United States was strongly on Israel’s side and there would be swift reprisals if Israel was attacked,” Trump said. “With Biden, the world is becoming more violent and more unstable, because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel are leading to new attacks on our allies,” the former president said.
