Defense Minister Yoav Galant said that the attack on the Palestinian city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip “will begin soon.”

This came during the Israeli cabinet weekly meeting on Sunday.

The United Nations (UN) and other countries warn of the consequences of Israel carrying out a large-scale ground military operation in Rafah, which is crowded with more than one and a half million displaced Palestinians.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs warned on Friday that any Israeli military operation in Rafah “could lead to a massacre” and paralyze humanitarian work throughout the Gaza Strip.
