The French newspaper, Le Monde reported that on Monday, Rafah, which houses more than a million displaced people, was targeted by Israeli airstrikes, sending dozens to the Kuwaiti Hospital. This occurred simultaneously with the announcement by Israeli authorities of the liberation of two captives in the sector through a military operation.

The Financial Times noted that the Israeli airstrike on Rafah comes amid growing international fears of a broader ground military invasion into a city with over a million displaced people, with Israeli officials claiming that it is the last major population center controlled by Hamas.

Increasing tension between Washington and NetanyahuThe tensions between Washington and Netanyahu have escalated. Financial Times highlighted the increased tensions between Netanyahu's government and the administration of US President Joe Biden due to the fate of Rafah.

Moreover, an article in The Wall Street Journal suggested that the operation to liberate the captives could achieve a local victory for Netanyahu in the face of international pressure to end the war. However, the article expressed concerns about the human losses resulting from the operation, which could confirm the complexities of a wide-ranging operation in the densely populated city.

The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz reported that the entire world feels despair from Netanyahu 'except for the new populist and eccentric Argentine president.' The article also mentioned the frustration of some ministers in the war government, such as Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot, adding that Biden and the entire US administration and the European Union (EU) are frustrated with Netanyahu.

Describing Netanyahu as a ‘hybrid creature,’ Haaretz suggested that he has completely broken the rules of the democratic and dictatorial game, making it challenging for the world to effectively deal with him.

The Houthi campaign has disrupted global shipping routes and raised transportation costs due to detours and additional fees for insurance and security.
