White House avoids question on Palestinians' right to self-defense

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki avoided a reporter's question whether US President Joe Biden believes Palestinians have a right to self-defense amid Israeli airstrikes, Anadolu Agency reported.

"We've heard repeatedly with respect to the statements about violence in Israel that Israel has a legitimate right to self-defense but we're not hearing about the Palestinians right to self-defense. Why is that and does the president believe that Palestinians have a right to self-defense," asked a reporter.

In response, Psaki did not say "yes" or "no" to the question but said the US is working to de-escalate and try to reduce in the region.

"Let me first say, I think it's important to note, as I think you'd agree, that these [rocket] attacks are coming from Hamas and many Palestinian people are being put in danger because of the violence that is happening back and forth.
