Why did Netanyahu say… we made a mistake, pressure was increasing from all over the world


At a time when European countries like Spain, Ireland, Norway are recognising Palestine as a state, the Israeli army is bombing the places where Palestinians live in large numbers. Amidst all this, reactions are coming from all over the world on an Israeli attack in Rafah, Gaza. In this connection, an extraordinary incident was witnessed on Monday.

On this day, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted that the Israeli attack on a tent of Palestinian refugees was a mistake. Addressing the Israeli Parliament, Netanyahu said, "We are constantly trying to ensure that innocent civilians are not harmed in the action, but we made a tragic mistake last night."

Rafah city is located in the south of Gaza. A displaced people's camp was built here. An Israeli attack took place on a tent in this camp in which at least 45 Palestinians lost their lives. The attack was so horrific that the surrounding areas also came under its grip. Netanyahu has talked about investigating this incident and reaching a conclusion.

France and Israel reacted

But France, which is not only an important ally of the European Union but also a close friend of Israel, has said that it is angry at this attack by Israel.

French President Emmanuel Macron wrote on the social media platform X that "such actions must stop. There is no safe place for the Palestinian people in Gaza. I demand an immediate ceasefire in accordance with international laws."

Not just France, Italy's Defence Minister Guido Crosetto also said that such Israeli attacks in Rafah will have long-term consequences for Israel.

Current situation after last 8 months

In fact, the war between Israel and Hamas has been going on for 234 days. Now this war has turned into an Israeli bombing of Gaza rather than an Israel-Hamas war. So far at least 37 thousand people have lost their lives in this war.

Despite the fact that International Criminal Court Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan has appealed to issue arrest warrants against Netanyahu and his government's Defense Minister Yoav Galant, the Israeli action is not stopping.

The war between the two started after Hamas's shocking attack on Israel on 7 October. 1,200 Israelis were killed in this. 250 people were taken hostage by Hamas. Out of these, more than 100 have been released from Hamas's clutches during the ceasefire, but about 100 are still in Hamas' custody as hostages.

Here, about 80 percent of Gaza's population, i.e. 8 out of 10 people, have been displaced due to Israeli bombing. Gaza's total population is 2.3 million. According to the United Nations, people in Gaza are suffering from food shortage and there is a situation of famine on a large scale.
