French foreign minister says Rafah invasion would be ‘unjustified’

Stephane Sejourne, the foreign minister of France, said that an Israeli assault on Rafah would be unjustified, according to Reuters.

International pressure warning Israel against invading the southern city of Gaza is mounting, with Rafah currently home to more than a million people - many of whom originally fled to the area to escape bombardment in central and northern Gaza.
