US, Israeli officials to hold virtual meeting on contentious Rafah operation

Senior US and Israeli officials are set to hold a virtual meeting to discuss alternative proposals to an Israeli military operation in Rafah. The meeting comes after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled a planned visit to Washington following the passage of a Gaza ceasefire resolution at the UN Security Council. The US wants Israel to consider alternatives to a ground invasion of Rafah, while Netanyahu insists on entering the city to root out Hamas's remaining brigades. Israel has faced international pressure for a ceasefire but maintains that the war will not end until Hamas is fully dismantled.
