On a call with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, President Joe Biden “conveyed to the prime minister that he expected a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire” as Israeli military strikes on Gaza continue for a 10th day.

The call marked his fourth call with the prime minister within the last week.
