Jordan king: We can't afford IDF attack on Rafah, which will bring another catastrophe

Jordan's King Abdullah expresses concern over the potential Israeli attack on Rafah, stating that it will lead to another humanitarian catastrophe. He emphasizes the need for a lasting ceasefire and an end to the war, which has already resulted in the death, injury, or disappearance of nearly 100,000 people, mostly women and children. Israel plans to operate in Rafah to dismantle Hamas's remaining battalions, but Prime Minister Netanyahu assures that civilians will be allowed to evacuate first. However, the location for their evacuation remains uncertain as Israel opposes their return to the north, and Egypt refuses to accept refugees due to fears of Israel's restrictions on their re-entry to Gaza.
