Israel’s Rafah Operation Is Start Of Fighting Completion

Reported by PBS, Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that he’ll be convening the Cabinet this week to approve operational plans in Rafah. According to him, once it begins, the intense phase of fighting is weeks away from completion and not months. With or without the proposed six-week ceasefire deal, Israel will still do the Rafah operation. Netanyahu also said that four of the six remaining Hamas Battalions are concentrated in Rafah.

However, US National security adviser Jake Sullivan said that President Joe Biden hadn’t been briefed on the Rafah plan so he believes that it should not go forward until or unless there is a plant to protect the civilians. Netanyahu said that in the Cabinet talks this week, they will also include evacuation plans of civilian to elsewhere in Gaza.
