Republican senators on Capitol Hill accused President Biden on Thursday of favoring a “Hamas victory over Israel” and being a “propaganda tool” for the Palestinian terrorist group after he vowed to withhold weapons from Israel if it follows through with an invasion of Rafah.

Biden, during an interview with CNN released Wednesday, said “Civilians have been killed in Gaza as a consequence of those bombs” and that he has made clear to Israel “if they go into Rafah, I’m not supplying the weapons that have been used historically to deal with Rafah, to deal with the cities — that deal with that problem.”

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Thursday during a news conference that “Hamas’ leaders and its last four battalions are holed up in Rafah” and that “Israel has to defeat Hamas in Rafah to win.”
