Biden thinks 'Netanyahu is the key obstacle' in ceasefire

President Joe Biden has reportedly called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the 'primary obstacle' to peace in the Middle East. A source close to the president stated that Biden feels Netanyahu is 'giving him hell' over ceasefire negotiations. The remarks come as Israeli airstrikes continue to cause casualties in Gaza. The White House has sought to downplay criticism of Israel, but Biden's direct criticism of the Israeli military operations in Gaza has been described as 'over the top' and he has called for the suffering of innocent people to stop. The president's deputy principal national security adviser, Jon Finer, also expressed a lack of confidence in Netanyahu's right-wing government's commitment to a two-state solution.
