German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock says she is very concerned about Israel’s announcement that it is planning a large military offensive in Rafah.

“I am especially concerned about the announcement by the Israeli government of a large ground military operation in Rafah,” she says at a news conference with the Palestinian foreign minister in Berlin. “Of course, it is completely clear that also in Rafah, there is an unbelievably large net of [the] Hamas terrorist organization,” she says, adding that Israel has a right to defend itself from terrorism.
