In a recent address at the Knesset, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to the deadly Israeli airstrike on a camp for displaced Palestinians in Rafah as a “tragic mishap.” He emphasized that investigating the incident is their policy and expressed sorrow over the loss of innocent lives. Netanyahu stated, “For us, every uninvolved [person hurt] is a tragedy,” and asserted that the airstrike occurred despite their best efforts to avoid harming civilians.

The Israeli airstrike on tents housing displaced individuals in Rafah resulted in a reported death toll of at least 45 people, according to Gaza officials. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have initiated an investigation into the airstrike. Despite international condemnation of the offensive in Rafah and a recent ruling by the International Court of Justice ordering an immediate cessation of hostilities, Netanyahu remained relentless in his stance. He affirmed his commitment to continuing the fight in Gaza, declaring, “I will keep fighting until the flag of victory is raised,” as reported by the Times of Israel.

Netanyahu also voiced his determination not to conclude the war until all objectives have been accomplished, expressing concerns that yielding prematurely could lead to further bloodshed. Despite Netanyahu’s persistence, the international community has not been able to bring Israel under international law. According to critics, it is the failure of the global community not to halt Israel from committing war crimes in Palestine.
