Following the collapse of ceasefire negotiations with the terrorist regime once more, Israel has resumed its missile attack on Rafah, the last remaining stronghold of Hamas in Gaza.

Two weeks longer than what the Israeli Defense Force had initially proposed, a 12-week ceasefire was apparently what Hamas wanted during negotiations in Cairo, Egypt.

While the IDF gathers troops and military hardware outside the city limits in anticipation of a ground invasion, airstrikes on Rafah continue.

As the conflict erupts, thousands of Palestinians have fled the city in large numbers, and more than 100,000 internally displaced people have established makeshift shanty towns and tent cities outside of Rafah.

Western nations, who have consistently urged the Jewish nation to forego the operation due to the high likelihood of civilian casualties, are not fond of the Israeli government’s resolve to enter Rafah.

Even if it means that Israel will lose its allies, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to carry out the eradication of Hamas.

Israelis are urged to leave Gaza before the anticipated ground operation in Hamas Stranghold.

Netanyahu declared, “We shall stand alone if we must.”. “We’ll fight with our fingernails if necessary. But we are stronger than our fingernails, and with God’s assistance and that spirit, we will triumph as a team. “.

In the event that the Jewish State proceeds with its invasion of Rafah, President Biden has promised to withhold weapons from Israel.

“They go after population centers with those bombs and other means, and as a result, civilians have been killed in Gaza,” Biden said in an interview with CNN that was made public on Wednesday.

“I’m not providing the weapons that have been historically used to deal with Rafah, to deal with the cities – that deal with that problem,” Biden stated, “even though they haven’t entered Rafah yet.”.

Overnight, airstrikes were launched against Gaza’s Jabalya camp in the north. At the same time, there were more strikes in Khan Younis. The bombings claimed the lives of twelve people in total.

According to reports, four IDF soldiers were slain on Friday in northern Gaza. The incident had nothing to do with the ongoing dispute over Rafah.
