US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant at IDF military headquarters in Tel Aviv on Friday, stating in reference to Hamas's assault on southern Israel and the IDF’s counterattack, “this is no time for neutrality or false equivalence.”

Making the point that Hamas is an evil group which Israel and the IDF should never be compared to when responding in self-defense, he said, "I know ISIS very well, and it's worse than what I've seen with ISIS." Further, Austin said that Hamas has “nothing to offer but zealotry, bigotry, and death,” noting this past Saturday was “the bloodiest since the Holocaust” for Jews worldwide.
