Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told U.S. President Joe Biden on Saturday that Israel "is doing everything to avoid harming" people who are not involved in its fighting with Hamas and other groups in Gaza.
According to a summary of the phone call released by Netanyahu's office, the prime minister told Biden that "the uninvolved were evacuated" from a Gaza tower block that housed media offices and other offices and apartments and that was destroyed earlier in the day in an IAF strike.
"Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked the president for the support of the United States for our right to defend ourselves," the readout said.
