Netanyahu: Israel will enter Rafah regardless of a cease-fire deal with Hamas | DW News

Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is vowing that his country’s army will enter the southern Gaza city of Rafah – regardless of whether a cease-fire deal is reached with Hamas.

Speaking at a meeting with the families of Israeli hostages, Netanayhu said Israel would not end the war until all of its goals had been achieved – including eliminating Hamas battalions in Rafah. Many had hoped a cease-fire agreement would avert a Rafah ground incursion – which Israel’s allies, including the United States and Germany, have warned against.
