Troops advance into the heart of Rafah while Israel batters Gaza.

The heart of Rafah while Israel batters:

AAFP Witnesses reported airstrikes in Rafah, the southern city that has been the center of the almost eight-month conflict, yesterday as Israeli forces hit targets throughout the Gaza Strip.

International concerns about the safety of people seeking sanctuary in the city on Gaza’s border with Egypt prompted Israel to begin its military assault on Rafah in early May.

Several people condemned the strike that occurred over the weekend in a camp for displaced people, which resulted in a fire and several deaths.

An AFP correspondent witnessed heavy bombardment in the north, while witnesses claimed that Israeli attacks yesterday affected the Rafah region as well as Nuseirat in central Gaza.

11 people lost their lives in two different locations during the course of the night due to strikes, according to medical sources at the Nuseirat refugee camp and a hospital in Deir al-Balah.

According to the Israeli military, rocket launchers, weaponry, and “tunnel shafts” were discovered in the city center of Rafah while their forces “continued… operational activities” there.

A jihadist in that region was “targeted and eliminated” by an airstrike, it continued. Without providing any details, the military claimed that more airstrikes in central Gaza “eliminated several terrorists who operated near” troops.

The 14-kilometer Philadelphi corridor that runs parallel to the Gaza-Egypt border was declared over by the Israeli military on Wednesday.

In response to US President Joe Biden’s call for an end to the nearly eight-month-long conflict, Hamas stated on Friday that it “considers positively” an Israeli plan towards a complete ceasefire in Gaza.

the heart of Rafah while Israel batters: Ben Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, quickly dampened down Biden’s notion of peace, stating that the army would not stop fighting until it had “eliminated” Hamas’s ability to control Gaza and be a military threat.

Biden’s speech was delivered as Israeli forces advanced into the heart of Rafah, intensifying their conflict with Hamas in spite of international opposition to any attack on the city located in southern Gaza.

The heart of Rafah while Israel batters: Biden gave an outline of how the war would end, saying that Israel’s three-stage approach would start with a six-week phase in which Israeli soldiers would leave all of Gaza’s populous areas.

It would also involve the “release of a number of hostages, including women, the elderly, and the wounded, in exchange for the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.”.

Then, during those six weeks, Israel and the Palestinians would negotiate a long-term ceasefire; nonetheless, Biden maintained, the truce would hold while the negotiations were still in progress.

The Israeli deal was pushed through by the US president to Hamas. “It’s time for this war to end and for the day after to begin,” he declared, echoing the views of American Foreign Secretary David Cameron.

In a statement released on Friday night, Hamas stated that it “considers positively” what Biden said about “a permanent ceasefire, the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza, reconstruction, and the exchange of prisoners.”.

According to UN Special Envoy Antonio Guterres’ spokesman Stephane Dujarric, the organization “strongly hopes” that the most recent development “will lead to an agreement by the parties for lasting peace.”.

As part of their continuous attack in southern Gaza, the Israeli military stated that its soldiers are in operation in central Rafah. Approximately one million Palestinians have left the city since the ground assault started on May 6, which has interfered with UN humanitarian efforts. Israel’s forces have moved into most of Rafah, unearthing Hamas rocket launchers and tunnels, despite US President Joe Biden’s warning against a complete assault. Currently, a large number of Palestinians—roughly 300,000—live in filthy camps in the region, despite ongoing fighting and shelling.
