Netanyahu: calls for Israel not to expand the Rafah operation are calls to lose

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said calls for Israel not to expand its operation in the Gaza Strip to the city of Rafah constitute calls to lose.

The Israeli military has cleared and destroyed most of Hamas' infrastructure in the rest of the Gaza Strip, and Israel is redirecting those in Rafah north of it, Netanyahu said in an interview with Fox News.

On the morning of October 7, Hamas fighters infiltrated the border areas of southern Israel, killing and taking hostage many civilians and military personnel, and launched more than 3,000 rockets into the country. The number of victims was at least 1,400 people, most of them civilians. Many of the dead were participants in the music festival. The attack was the largest mass murder of Jews since the Holocaust. In response, Israel launched Operation Iron Swords against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
