Hamas in its initial response to the IDF rescue of two hostages rails against “the massacre the Israeli army conducted in Rafah tonight” and blames the US “for giving the green light to Netanyahu.”

The military said it used intense firepower against gunmen in and around the building where the two hostages were held. It said “many terrorists were killed.” Hamas has said over 50 people are dead.

Hamas calls the operation a continuation of the “genocidal war” and the forced displacement attempts against the Palestinian people.
