The danger of an Israeli incursion into the southernmost city of the Gaza Strip, Rafah, existed on Sunday as well, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised a safe passage to the displaced civilians, reports Agence France-Presse (AFP).
Despite the criticism, Netanyahu reiterated his intention to expand Israel’s military operation into the city. In an interview broadcast on ABC News on Sunday, Netanyahu said: We will do it. He said that he agreed with the Americans that the priority should be the safety of civilians.
We will do it by providing safe passage for the civilian population so that they can leave
said the prime minister.
Meanwhile, British Foreign Minister David Cameron and Dutch Foreign Minister Hanke Bruins Slot also joined the camp of those concerned.
I am deeply concerned about the planned military attack in Rafah – more than half of the Gaza population lives in the area
Cameron announced on X.
