Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the military to prepare to evacuate civilians from the southern Gazan city of Rafah ahead of an expanded offensive against Hamas.

Some 1.5 million Palestinians are in Rafah to seek refuge from Israeli combat operations in the rest of Gaza.

The US has warned Israel an invasion of Rafah would be a "disaster", while the EU and the UN both expressed concern.

Aid groups say it is not possible to evacuate everyone from the city.

Mr Netanyahu told military and security officials to "submit to the cabinet a combined plan for evacuating the population and destroying the battalions" of Hamas, his office said on Friday.

"It is impossible to achieve the goal of the war without eliminating Hamas, and by leaving four Hamas battalions in Rafah. On the contrary, it is clear that intense activity in Rafah requires that civilians evacuate the areas of combat," the statement added.

Earlier this week, Mr Netanyahu said he had ordered troops to "prepare to operate" in Rafah and that "total victory" by Israel over Hamas was just months away.

He made the comments while rejecting Hamas's latest proposed ceasefire terms[/size]. The BBC has been told that negotiators for Hamas are leaving the Egyptian capital Cairo, with talks between the two sides now on hold.

Shameful,  photo of bullet shattered car containing Hind Rajab's body.


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-68261286


Why are civilians' cars being fired on?


Again,  commanders and generals have no control over their soldiers.







BBC News, Jerusalem


A six-year-old girl who went missing in Gaza City last month has been found dead, along with several of her relatives and two paramedics who tried to save her, after they appear to have come under fire from Israeli tanks.

Hind Rajab was fleeing the city in a car with her aunt, uncle and three cousins at the time.

Audio recordings of calls between Hind and emergency call operators suggest that the six-year-old was the only one left alive in the car, hiding from Israeli forces among the bodies of her relatives.

Her pleas for someone to rescue her ended when the phone line was cut amid the sound of more gunfire.

Paramedics from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) managed on Saturday to reach the area, which had previously been closed off as an active combat zone.

They found the black Kia car Hind had been travelling in - its windscreen and dashboard smashed to pieces, bullet holes scattered across the side.

Quote from Jeremy Bowen, BBC propagandist:
"Since we cannot get in, we rely on Palestinian journalists who can't get out. I have huge admiration for their courage and dedication to truthful reporting".


 If the Journalists can't access the area of conflict, how does this BBC hack know that the Palestinian propag... er sorry 'Journalists' are reporting truthfully?
  But remember this is the same idiot that reported that the missile strike on the hospital was an Israeli attack even though it was a lie, and after it was proved so he claimed he did not regret the lie, this guy is as credible as 'Comical Ali', remember him?

    No. Hamas are still operational and their supporters in Gaza are still breathing. We have had nowhere near enough yet.


    And as for the legions of Hamas supporters outside of Palestine, judgement for them will have to wait until a later date. But it will have to come, nevertheless.

    Hundreds of tractors blockaded the Port of Antwerp in Belgium on Tuesday as farmers continue their fight against the green agenda and free trade policies of Brussels ahead of the European Parliament elections.


    Business at Europe’s second-largest seaport was serverly impacted as around 500 tractors blocked off access on the roads surrounding the Port of Antwerp in northern Belgium to protest the environmental and agricultural policies imposed on them by their own government and Eurocrats thirty miles to the south in Brussels.

    The self-appointed ‘elites’ are planning to create mass starvation in order to significantly reduce the world’s population. Klaus Schwab acknowledged this at the World Economic Forum’s January Jamboree in 2021, when he openly stated that they “did not yet know” how the implementation of Agenda 2030 and the Carbon Zero policies that go alongside it will disrupt the production of food (or “fud”, as he described it in his very best clipped Nazi accent). Those who survive will be tightly reigned in by the billionaires who will, of course, control the limited amounts of low grade food they deign to make available to the public.


    All of this information has been in the public realm for more than three years now, but it is amazing how many people are unaware it exists. It is almost as if the bulk of the population are happy at the prospect of a slow walk into the gulag.


    Go figure……🤔

    DJ Steve Wright, who presented programmes for BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2 for more than four decades, has died at the age of 69.

    His family confirmed his death "with deep sorrow and profound regret" in a statement on Tuesday.

    Wright joined the BBC in the 1970s and went on to host the afternoon shows on Radio 1 and Radio 2.

    He also fronted television programmes for the BBC, including Top of the Pops.

    Wright was last on air on Sunday, hosting a pre-recorded special Valentine's Day edition of his Love Songs programme. He passed away on Monday.

    Paying tribute to Wright on Radio 2 after his death was announced, an emotional Sara Cox said: "It's really hard to know what to say about the news of Steve Wright's passing, except we are all shocked and devastated and blindsided by this news.

    "Steve was an extraordinary broadcaster, a really kind person, he was witty, he was warm, and he was a huge, huge part of the Radio 2 family, and I know my fellow DJs will all be absolutely shattered too."

    Another one bites the dust. Another figure from youthful days is no longer above ground. How depressing. 🥺

    Israel's military says its special forces have gone into the besieged Nasser hospital in southern Gaza.

    It says "a precise and limited operation" is under way. It says Hamas fighters are hiding inside and Israeli hostages' bodies might also be there.

    It comes a day after the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) ordered thousands of displaced people to leave the site.

    The hospital is the largest in the south of the Gaza Strip.

    Video footage from earlier appears to show medical staff rushing to take patients in stretchers through a corridor filled with smoke.

    This is entirely normal behaviour for the Demonic savages of Hamas. They store weapons and ammunition in hospitals and place rocket launchers in school playgrounds.


    The regime led by the sweaty coke head in Kiev adopted these tactics at the outset of NATO's war with Russia. This is why it is taking the Russians so long to achieve and declare a final victory.
