White House news briefing: Watch live

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is scheduled to deliver a briefing Monday afternoon.

It comes after President Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the weekend. The administration has continued to call for a cease-fire in Israel’s war against Hamas that could open wider channels for humanitarian aid into Gaza.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is visiting countries in the region, advocating both for the release of hostages by Hamas and respect for civilian lives by Israel.

Israel’s war on Hamas is having an increasingly visible effect in the United States, with pro-Israel and pro-Palestine groups holding competing mass demonstrations at the University of California, Los Angeles, over the weekend as an example.

The Monday White House news briefing is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. EDT.
