Netanyahu of Israel says that before an invasion, civilians can evacuate crowded Rafah

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised that residents swarming the southern Gaza Strip would be allowed to evacuate before military forces go in to pursue Hamas.
Along with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, he made these remarks in response to concerns expressed globally about what would happen to the estimated 1.5 million people who have sought safety in Rafah, the majority of whom were uprooted by the conflict in Gaza.

The right-wing premier’s office had announced on Friday that he had authorised the military’s plan for an operation in Rafah which included “the evacuation of the population”. His security and war cabinets were scheduled to review the latest international efforts towards a truce arrangement.
