Washington: The US President has become tense about the possibility of Israel’s military operation. This is the reason why Joe Biden called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a hurry and said that he is very worried about the possibility of Israel’s military operation in Rafah. US National Security Advisor Jack Sullivan revealed the conversation between US President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which Biden told Netanyahu that he is very worried about the possibility of Israel launching a major military operation in Rafah like Gaza City and Khan Younis.

US National Security Advisor Sullivan said in his regular press conference on Monday that Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to send a team of Israeli officials to Washington to discuss alternative ways to target Hamas terrorists in the city of Rafah in southern Gaza and to secure the Egypt-Gaza border without a major ground attack in a phone conversation with Biden on Monday. This is the first time in a month that the two leaders have spoken on the phone.

Sullivan said that Biden and Netanyahu discussed Rafah in detail. He said, ‘The President explained why he is so worried about the possibility of Israel launching a major military operation in Rafah like Gaza City and Khan Younis.’ The National Security Advisor said that more than 1 million people have taken refuge in Rafah. He said that they went from Gaza City to Khan Younis and then to Rafah, now they have no safe place. He said that other major cities of Gaza have been destroyed on a large scale.

He said Israel has not told the US or the world its plans for how or where it will safely transfer those civilians. Sullivan said Rafah is the main entry point for humanitarian aid from Egypt to Gaza and a military operation in the city would close it. He said, ‘Rafah is located on the border with Egypt and Egypt has expressed deep concern about a major military operation there and as a result has also raised questions about its future relations with Israel.’

He said, ‘We believe that Hamas should not be given shelter in Rafah or anywhere else. But it would be a mistake to launch a major ground operation there. This will take many innocent lives, worsen the already serious humanitarian crisis, increase chaos in Gaza and Israel will be further isolated internationally. Sullivan said that the two leaders also discussed the ongoing talks about an immediate ceasefire for several weeks in exchange for the release of people held hostage by Hamas and other terrorists in Gaza. Biden reiterated his “unwavering commitment” to ensuring Israel’s long-term security and said that Israel has the right to attack Hamas, which has committed the most gruesome attack on the Jewish people since the Holocaust.
