The Biden administration on Friday reiterated that it was working toward de-escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and lasting peace in Gaza.
It also said Israel had a right to self-defense.
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters the administration was focused on leveraging U.S. relationships in the region to end the crisis between Israel and the Islamist militant Hamas diplomatically.
