Netanyahu responds to criticism of decision to enter Rafah

Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel has criticized calls to not enter Rafah, stating that those in favor of this stance are essentially advocating for losing the war and keeping Hamas in control. He did not provide details or a timetable for a ground invasion of Rafah, Gaza’s southernmost region bordering Egypt.

Netanyahu announced that he had ordered defense forces to plan the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people from Rafah in preparation for the ground invasion. However, a number of countries in the Middle East and Europe, led by the EU leadership, warned about the disastrous consequences of Israel’s attack on Rafah.

The international community is closely monitoring the events in this region as official data from Israel indicates that at least 1,200 people have been killed and another 6,900 injured since October 7. In Gaza, controlled by Hamas, at least 28,064 people have been killed and 67,611 injured in the same time frame.

Overall, the situation remains tense and there is a need for a peaceful resolution to this ongoing conflict.
