Netanyahu prepares for Rafah invasion

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that efforts are in progress for an incursion into Rafah in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, but noted that this operation "will take some time".

In the announcement on Wednesday, Netanyahu said he would shortly authorise a strategy for moving Palestinian civilians away from conflict zones, following his approval of the military's tactical plans for Rafah.
