President Biden says he will halt the shipment of US-made offensive weapons to Israel if they launch a long-threatened assault on the refugee-filled city of Rafah in southern Gaza. Speaking to CNN, Biden acknowledged for the first time that Israel has used similar munitions provided by the US to kill Palestinian civilians. His comments were his strongest rebuke to date of Israel's conduct in the seven-month-long war against Hamas in Gaza. ------------------------------------- Join our newsletter at https://bit.ly/2q1tepr Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/scrippsnews/ Follow us on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/scrippsnews Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/scrippsnews/ Follow us on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@scrippsnews
