The United States announced to slap an entry ban on Jewish extremist settlers who are attacking Palestinians in the West Bank since Israel waged war on Gazans.
“I have been emphatic with Israel’s leaders that extremist violence against Palestinians in the West Bank must stop and that those committing the violence must be held accountable,” US President Joe Biden wrote in an opinion piece he published in the Washington Post.
“The United States is prepared to take our own steps, including issuing visa bans against extremists attacking civilians in the West Bank,” he stressed.
Since Israel waged war against Gazans, eight Palestinians, including one child, have been killed by settlers in the West Bank and another 74 were injured, as per the data shared by the United Nations, including 33% of those injuries were caused by live ammunition.
“In the months ahead, the United States will redouble our efforts to establish a more peaceful, integrated, and prosperous Middle East — a region where a day like Oct. 7 is unthinkable, “ Biden wrote.
