Netanyahu Admits ‘Tragic Error’ Following Rafah Strike That Resulted in Dozens of Palestinian Deaths

Israeli Strike in Rafah Kills Dozens, Netanyahu Admits “Tragic Mistake”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted to a “tragic mistake” after an Israeli strike in Rafah, Gaza set fire to a tent camp housing displaced Palestinians, resulting in the deaths of at least 45 people. The strike has led to a surge in international criticism against Israel, with even its closest allies expressing outrage at civilian casualties.

The incident occurred during a strike on a Hamas compound, with the Israeli military claiming to have killed two senior militants. However, it was later revealed that the strike had resulted in the deaths of numerous civilians. Netanyahu stated that an investigation would be launched to determine the cause of the error.

The strike on Rafah has further escalated tensions in the region, with the overall Palestinian death toll in the war now exceeding 36,000. The attack has drawn condemnation from leaders around the world, including the U.S., France, Germany, and Qatar.

The Israeli military has initiated criminal investigations into possible violations of international law, including the deaths of civilians. Rights groups have criticized Israel for failing to fully investigate violence against Palestinians. Israel has denied allegations of genocide and faces legal action at the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.

The conflict, which was triggered by a Hamas attack into Israel, has led to widespread displacement, severe hunger, and reports of famine in Gaza. The situation remains dire as the war continues to unfold.
