US President Joe Biden came to Israel to show his support for the country after the conflict with Hamas. However, the trip to Jordan was canceled after a massive explosion at a hospital in Gaza killed hundreds of civilians. Responsibility for the explosion is disputed; Hamas blames Israel, while Israeli officials deny responsibility.

The conflict between Israel and Hamas began on October 7, leaving more than 4,000 people injured on both sides. While President Biden expressed his anger and sadness over the hospital bombing incident, the Quad meeting planned to be held in Jordan was postponed due to the conflict.
