The Israeli military is drawing up plans for both the evacuation of civilians from Rafah and a “massive” military operation in the border town at the request of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister’s office announced Friday. More than a million displaced people are crowded into Rafah, and aid groups have warned against military action there. The United States “would not support” a major Israeli military operation in Rafah under current conditions, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said Thursday. Airstrikes hit the border town overnight.
