President Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the conflict in Gaza, and Biden emphasized that the humanitarian situation and recent strikes on aid workers, especially, are unacceptable.

Biden pressed Netanyahu to put concrete policies in place to address civilian harm and the safety of aid workers, saying their action would shape future U.S. policy on Gaza.

Five senior Israeli officers were fired or reprimanded for their roles in the bombing that killed seven World Central Kitchen workers.

Retired U.S. Marine Colonel Brian Kennedy believes that despite the disciplinary action taken against those officers, Biden's message was not received.

"It's easy to fire somebody so that it looks like you're taking the situation seriously, but let's be quite honest, Gaza is a very, very difficult and a very dangerous place right now, and oftentimes mistakes are made," said Kennedy. "Entities are targeted when they should not be targeted, and sometimes innocent individuals, namely Palestinians and world kitchen aid workers, sometimes lose their lives trying to do good things, when really the intent was never to harm them in the first place. So I think that things like this are always going to happen in warfare," he said.

Biden warned Netanyahu and Antony Blinken reiterated that their action could lead to a change in U.S. policy for Israel, going forward. Kennedy says he doesn't see the war ending anytime soon and that he thinks the U.S. will continue to supply arms and ammunition as well as call for humanitarian support.
