White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated on “CNN This Morning” that Israel has reduced its fight against Hamas and withdrawn from parts of Gaza due to President Joe Biden’s conversations with Israel.

She emphasized the need for Israel to defend itself within international humanitarian law and highlighted the President’s efforts to achieve a humanitarian pause to facilitate the delivery of aid and the return of hostages.

“We have to remember what happened on October 7. What happened on October 7 is Hamas, a terrorist organization, a terrorist organization that uses — let’s be very clear — uses innocent Palestinian civilians and embeds themselves in hospitals, embeds themselves in places where civilians live, and that’s what they do,” Jean-Pierre said.

“That is what they’re doing. And so, they attacked Israel on October 7, and the President believes they have a right to defend themselves. Now, we’ve been very clear, they have to do that within the international humanitarian law. We’ve been very clear with that. We’ve had conversations with them,” she said.

“We’ve seen how they are now basically lowering their intensity, moving out of certain parts of Gaza, which is because — that’s happening because of conversations that the President has had.”

“And one more important thing is the President has been working around the clock to make sure we get to that humanitarian pause, because it’s important that we get hostages home to their friends and families, the people who love them, and get that humanitarian aid into Gaza, the medical needs that they have, the food needs that they have. So, all of those things are critical,” she said.
