    US President Joe Biden has expressed support for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip during his third call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since the violence flared up.

    Biden says Israelis and Palestinians are both entitled to safety and security while reiterating that Israel has the right to defend itself.
