The international press highlighted Israel's growing threat of imminent military operation in the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, and the dangers it might cause due to the presence of large numbers of displaced people there, in addition to issues related to the Gaza war.

In this context, the British newspaper "Financial Times" warned of the dangers of a large-scale military operation in Rafah, as it based its report on satellite images showing how the large numbers of displaced people changed the appearance of the city that Israel intends to attack.

The report indicated that sites in Rafah had already been bombed and that there were few options for those trapped there.

An article in the Israeli newspaper "Haaretz" said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's insistence on fighting the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) until complete victory is achieved is an illusion.

The article concluded from Netanyahu's recent statements that he fell into many contradictions, including his talk about destroying the tunnels despite the fact that it was an elusive goal, and a military operation in Rafah even though it was extremely complex, in addition to his ambiguous answers to questions about the future of Gaza and the threat from the Lebanese Hezbollah.

In turn, the French newspaper Le Monde said that Hamas's tunnel network remains intact despite the intense Israeli bombing since the beginning of the war.

The newspaper quoted a French military source as saying that destroying tunnels as they appear in Gaza is almost impossible, pointing out the failure of various types of bombs to reach them and the failure of plans to flood them with water.

As for the British newspaper The Independent, it touched on a letter sent by Doctors Without Borders to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, in which it said that there is increasing evidence that the Israeli army is deliberately targeting journalists.

The organization stated that it had submitted two complaints to the International Criminal Court regarding crimes against journalists in the Middle East since October 7, and stressed the need to pressure Israel to allow documentation of its military operations.

For its part, the American newspaper "The Wall Street Journal" said that the killing of a prominent commander in the Hezbollah Brigades in an American raid in Iraq increases demands for the expulsion of the international coalition forces.

According to the newspaper, the strike added more tension between Baghdad and Washington, and intensified popular and political pressure on the Iraqi government regarding the withdrawal of the US-led coalition forces from Iraqi territory.
