United States President Joe Biden, speaking about healthcare at an event held in Raleigh, North Carolina, was interrupted by pro-Palestine protestors who highlighted the catastrophic humanitarian crisis.

"What about the health care in Gaza?" the protestors shouted, in contrast to Biden promoting his healthcare agenda ahead of an upcoming election.

“Everybody deserves health care," Biden said in response, asking the audience to “be patient with them.”

The two women who disrupted the speech shouted out that Biden is “complicit in genocide” in addition to highlighting the ongoing campaign by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) against Gaza’s hospitals and healthcare facilities.
