Operational update on the IDF battle in Rafah

NEWSRAEL: While National Security Advisor of the United States, Jake Sullivan is arriving today for talks in Israel — the Biden opposition to a Rafah operation is mute. Israel is in Rafah. Fact.


Despite the slow advance of the IDF to the center of Rafah, due to US envoy Sullivan’s visit, there is fighting and the cleaning of the neighborhoods that have been occupied so far in East Rafah.

Let’s hope that after Sullivan leaves the IDF will quickly advance to the center of Rafah, the Philadelphia axis is partially occupied (semi-fast) and the city itself is almost completely empty

  • The mayor of Rafah admits that since the beginning of the IDF operation, a total of over 950,000 refugees have evacuated from the city
  • Israeli tanks are advancing from the Brazil neighborhood towards the Kashta neighborhood and Saladin Gate
  • Tanks arrive at the Al-Shawi land in the Jenina neighborhood from the direction of the Al-Tanur neighborhood
  • Fighting around the eastern cemetery – at the end of the Jenina neighborhood, and in the Al-Tanur neighborhood (in orange)
  • Aerial bombings and artillery shelling in Jenina neighborhood, Al-Salam neighborhood, Brazil neighborhood, Kesheta neighborhood, Al-Balad neighborhood, Barbara neighborhood
  • The IDF blows up houses in East Rafah
  • The IDF found dozens of tunnel shafts in eastern Rafah

The occupation of Rafah expands — another division entered Rafah

The Reserve Brigade “Hangev” (12), entered Rafah and joins Givati, Commando and Brigade 401, now there are 4 brigades in Rafah — twice as many as at the beginning of the occupation of Rafah.


NEWSRAEL: It will be very interesting to talk with the National Security Advisor of the United States, Jake Sullivan who claimed earlier this month that it would take weeks to remove the residents of Gaza, and such an operation would mean “horrific cost of innocent lives”.
