Netanyahu ordered to present a plan for the evacuation of the population from Rafah.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the army and the Ministry of Defense to present a plan for the evacuation of civilians from the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, where the military estimates that four more Hamas battalions remain, the prime minister’s office said on Friday.

The office noted that it is impossible to achieve the goals of the war in the Gaza Strip without eliminating the remaining Hamas battalions.

“The large-scale operation in Rafah requires the evacuation of civilians from the combat zone. That is why the Prime Minister instructed the IDF and defense structures to submit to the Cabinet a dual plan for the evacuation of the population and the liquidation of the battalions,” the statement said.
