US Senator Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday said she will not attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress on July 24 as he has "created a humanitarian catastrophe."

Responding to reporters' questions, Warren said, "He (Netanyahu) has also made clear that he does not support US policy for a two-state solution that will let the people of Israel and Palestinians develop their own nation self-determination, live with dignity.

"Look, we need a cease-fire, we need to get those hostages back, we need humanitarian relief, and we need to be giving both parties a big shove toward getting to the negotiating table and working out a peaceful solution."

When asked whether US President Joe Biden should clearly state that Netanyahu should not address Congress, Warren responded, "That's up to the president, but I'm not going."
