Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has criticized calls not to enter Rafah, saying those who support this position are essentially arguing for losing the war and keeping Hamas under control. He did not provide details or a timetable for the ground invasion of Rafah, Gaza’s southernmost enclave bordering Egypt.

Official figures from Israel show that at least 1,200 people have been killed and another 6,900 injured since October 7 in Gaza, which is controlled by Hamas. In response to the escalating violence, Netanyahu announced that he had ordered the defense forces to plan to evacuate hundreds of thousands of people from Rafah in preparation for a ground invasion.

However, a number of countries in the Middle East and Europe, led by the EU leadership, warned of the disastrous consequences of the Israeli attack on Rafah. They urged Netanyahu to reconsider his plans and find a peaceful solution to the conflict.

Despite these warnings, Netanyahu remains firm in his stance that a military intervention is necessary to defeat Hamas and restore peace to the region. He has not provided any specific details about when or how the operation will take place.

The international community is closely following the developments in this region with growing concern about the potential for further bloodshed and displacement. Many are calling for an immediate ceasefire and negotiations between Israel and Palestine to resolve their differences peacefully.
