Kirby calls Netanyahu comments 'disappointing and vexing'

White House spokesperson John Kirby on Thursday took issue with comments from Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which the Israeli leader claimed the Biden administration was withholding weapons and ammunition.

“We didn’t know that video was coming. It was perplexing to say the least,” Kirby told reporters when asked about Netanyahu’s comments, which were made in a video posted to social media earlier in the week.

“[There’s] no other country that’s done more or will continue to do more than the United States to help Israel defend itself,” the national security communications adviser added. “Those comments were deeply disappointing and vexing to us.”

Kirby said he had “no idea” what Netanyahu’s motivation was in making the comments criticizing the Biden administration.
