War in Gaza: Israeli Defense Minister announces that more troops will “enter Rafah”

Is the feared offensive preparing? The Israeli Defense Minister announced in a statement released Thursday that additional troops would participate in ground fighting in Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip, where military operations “will intensify.”

“Additional troops will enter” Rafah and “(military) activity will intensify,” Yoav Gallant said Wednesday during a field visit to the area, according to this press release. International capitals are alarmed by a large-scale land operation in this locality on the border with Egypt, where hundreds of thousands of civilians, residents and displaced people pushed there by the fighting are crowded together.

600,000 people fled Rafah

But Benjamin Netanyahu is determined to launch a major land offensive in Rafah. The Israeli Prime Minister believes that “the humanitarian catastrophe” in this city was avoided by the Jewish state, affirming that “nearly half a million people had evacuated the combat zone” in this city where the Israeli army has been carrying out military operations since May 7.

“In the Gaza Strip, 600,000 people have fled Rafah since the intensification of military operations,” lamented the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA). During an interview with the American channel CNBC, “Bibi” acknowledged a “disagreement” with Washington on Rafah. “But we have to do what we have to do,” he said. The European Union, for its part, urged Israel to “immediately cease” its operation in Rafah, otherwise it would “strain” its relationship with the EU.
