According to the statement made by the Israeli Prime Minister's Office, Netanyahu, speaking at the meeting attended by Biden, said that "this will be a different kind of war because Hamas is a different kind of enemy" regarding the attacks on Gaza.
Netanyahu said that they will continue to work with the United States to get the hostages out of the Gaza Strip, adding that "the road to victory will be long and difficult."
Biden said at the meeting, "I want you to know that you are not alone. We will continue to support Israel as you work to defend your people."
"We will continue to work with Israel and its partners in the region to prevent further tragedies for innocent civilians," the US President said.
The meeting was attended by Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant, Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer, Ultra-Orthodox Jewish Shas Party leader Arya Deri, Israeli National Security Council Chairman Tzachi Hanegbi and former Defense Minister Benny Gantz.
At the press conference held after his contacts in Israel, Biden said that the state of Israel was established as a safe place for Jewish people around the world, "It was established for this, if Israel did not exist, if it did not exist, we would have to invent it."
Stating that Israel must become a safe place for Jews again, Biden said, "I promise you that we will do whatever we can to make this happen."
Stating that 75 years ago, 11 minutes after its establishment, US President Harry Truman was the first state to recognize Israel, Biden said, "We showed then that we were on their side and we will show it now."
Stating that the US and Israel are not only states measured by their strength, but also countries and states that provide strength by setting an example, Biden said, "We are following a path, we are following a path so that the Israeli and Palestinian peoples can live together in dignity. We need to continue to work on a two-state solution so that they can live with their neighbors. This is my goal, this is my objective."
