US President Joe Biden warns Netanyahu on Lebanon and Iran

United States(US) President Joe Biden, who visited Israel yesterday, did not want another front in the region. The Israeli press wrote that the US administration was pressuring Israel not to start a war with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Blockaded Gaza has been under heavy bombardment by Israel since October 7. Following Israel's bloody hospital attack, US President Biden landed in Israel yesterday. It was learned that Biden, who gave his support by meeting with Netanyahu, did not want another front in the region. 

The Times of Israel newspaper, citing two unnamed officials, reported that the White House was making efforts to prevent the war from spreading beyond the blockaded Gaza Strip.

The officials told the newspaper that the US had privately and publicly warned Hezbollah and Iran against waging war on Israel's northern front.

"WOULD LEAD TO MAJOR WAR"

According to the officials, the US also warned Israel to be careful in responding to attacks by Hezbollah, pointing out that a mistake by the Israeli army in Lebanon could lead to a much larger war.

It was noted in the news report that White House officials have conveyed the message to theTel Avivadministration in recent days that the US army would support the Israeli army if Hezbollah started a war against Israel.

However, US President Joe Biden's statement to reporters on the plane after his visit to Tel Aviv yesterday that "it was never said that the US army would join if a front was opened with Hezbollah" was also included in the news report.
