Is the U.S. getting involved in the Israel-Gaza war? What to know.

The United States has pledged unequivocal support for ally Israel, underlining its right to defend itself after an unprecedented incursion by Hamas militants from the Gaza Strip killed at least 1,400 people and wounded about 4,562.

In a historic show of solidarity, President Biden made a visit Wednesday to Israel, where he was greeted at the airport by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and promised to redouble U.S. military assistance to the country. “Palestinian people are suffering greatly as well,” he said, and announced that a deal had been struck with Israel to allow humanitarian aid to flow into the Gaza Strip from Egypt.
