Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel will be moving its forces into Rafah after civilians sheltering in the southernmost city in Gaza are able to leave.

“We will fight until complete victory,” he writes on social media, “and this includes a powerful operation also in Rafah after we will allow the civilian population to leave battle zones.”
