Egypt urges US to warn Israel of consequences should IDF roll into Rafah

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry says the US should lay out actions it will take against Israel should it barrel ahead with a military offensive in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, after Washington voiced opposition to such a move.

“It is not enough for rhetoric, it is not enough to state opposition, it is also important to indicate what if that position is circumvented, what if that position is not respected,” Shoukry says at a briefing in Cairo.

“It is also up to the international community and the United States, who have indicated their refusal to such an eventuality, to make clear what are the consequences if their appeals are not heeded,” he adds in English.
