The Israeli military said its forces “killed 15 terrorists” in the previous day in Khan Yunis, southern Gaza’s largest city.

Israeli forces raided the city’s al-Amal hospital on Friday, after a week-long siege, during which the Palestinian Red Crescent reported “intense artillery shelling and heavy shelling”.

The medical organization said Israeli forces had arrested eight members of its team at the hospital, including “four doctors, as well as four injured persons and companions of five patients”.

UN chief Antonio Guterres has said that any Israeli pressure in Rafah would “rapidly escalate what is already a humanitarian nightmare”.

But Netanyahu’s office said it would be “impossible” to achieve the war objective of eliminating Hamas by leaving four battalions of militants in Rafah.

Hamas’ unprecedented October 7 attack killed some 1,160 people in Israel, mostly civilians, according to an AFP tally based on official Israeli figures.

In response, Israel vowed to eliminate Hamas and launched airstrikes and ground attacks that killed at least 27,947 people, mostly women and children, according to the health ministry in Hamas-run territory.

Israel said militants had captured 250 hostages, of whom 132 were still in Gaza, but 29 were presumed dead.
