White House: Israel told US that Rafah operation is limited; gaps with Hamas bridgeable

Israel has told the United States its operation in Rafah is limited and designed to prevent weapons and funds from being smuggled into Gaza, White House national security adviser John Kirby says, confirming what Israeli officials have said.

Talks on a hostage deal and ceasefire are resuming in Cairo with CIA Director William Burns attending, and the two sides should be able to close the remaining gaps, Kirby adds.
