46th President Joe Biden is set to visit Israel on Wednesday.
During the early hours of Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that Biden will finally make his way to the Jewish State to show support for Israel.
“U.S. President Joe Biden will visit Israel on Wednesday. He is coming here at a critical moment for Israel, for the region, and for the world,” Blinken announced. “President Biden will reaffirm the United States’ solidarity with Israel.”
Blinken traveled to Israel on Wednesday to further emphasize the United States’ support for the country, as it has been fighting to battle Hamas terrorists.
After his visit, he also traveled to other Middle Eastern countries to meet with a number of Arab leaders. While there, he reportedly attempted to persuade officials to step in and condemn Hamas’ violence.
Blinken returned back to the Holy Land on Monday.
