Netanyahu says Hamas ceasefire proposal falls short as Israeli forces take control of Rafah crossing


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday the latest truce proposal with Hamas falls far short of Israel’s essential demands, adding military pressure remains necessary to return hostages held in Gaza.

Israeli forces earlier took control of the Palestinian side of the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza on Monday, a move Netanyahu said was “a very significant step towards destruction of remaining military capabilities of Hamas.”

In Tel Aviv, dozens of protesters blocked a road to demonstrate against the army’s recent operation in Rafah, which they feared could affect any deals to release the hostages.
