Biden Rejects U.S. Participation in Israeli Counter-Offensive Against Iran

In a recent conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Joe Biden made it clear that the United States would not be involved in any Israeli-led counter-offensive against Iran. This comes after a significant drone and missile attack on Israeli territory, an action that has heightened tensions in the already volatile Middle East.

The potential of a full-scale conflict involving the U.S. has put the region on high alert, prompting calls for restraint from global leaders and Arab nations alike. United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres emphasized the urgent need for de-escalation, warning of the imminent threat of a devastating conflict.

While Deputy U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Robert Wood, urged the Security Council to condemn Iran's actions unequivocally, Biden's stance indicates a cautious approach towards direct military involvement. A White House official confirmed that the President conveyed to Netanyahu the U.S.'s decision to abstain from participating in any retaliatory actions against Iran.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin have been actively engaging with regional counterparts in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan. They have stressed the importance of restraint, the need for a coordinated diplomatic response, and reiterated the U.S.'s commitment to supporting Israel's defense while advocating for peace and de-escalation.
