In an interview with ABC News, US Vice President Kamala Harris warned the Israeli occupation authorities against launching a military operation in the Palestinian city of Rafah, stressing that there may be “consequences”  if Israel goes ahead with the planned invasion of Rafah.

"We have been clear in multiple talks that any major military operation in Rafah would be a huge mistake,” Harris said, adding: “I have studied the maps, there is nowhere for these people to go.”

She added, "Our priority now is what is happening in Gaza. We have been very clear that a very large number of innocent Palestinians have been killed. We have been very clear that Israel, the Israeli people, and the Palestinians have the right to security and dignity."
