US Secretary of State: Israel’s attack on Rafah will not destroy Hamas, but will provoke anarchy

Details: He recalled that the US had expressed concern for many months about a major military operation in Rafah, as most of the population from Gaza had moved to Rafah.

“And we told Israel that we cannot and will not support an operation in Rafah, a major military operation, in the absence of a credible plan to protect the civilian population,” Blinken said.

According to him, Israel must have “a clear, reliable plan to protect the civilian population, which we have not yet seen.”

In addition, the US wants to see a plan of action after the end of the conflict in Gaza.

“We see parts of Gaza that Israel has cleared from Hamas and where Hamas is coming back… When we look at Rafah, they (Israel. – Ed.) can go in there and have some initial success, but potentially at an incredibly high cost to the civilian population, and this success will not be long-lasting, it will not be sustainable,” the state secretary is convinced.

He believes that it will not be possible to completely clear Rafah of Hamas militants.

“Or if they (Hamas. – Ed.) withdraw from Gaza, as we believe they should, then there will be a vacuum that will most likely be filled with chaos, anarchy and, ultimately, Hamas again,” Blinken added .

US President Joe Biden threatened to suspend supply of weapons to Israel, if he does enter to continue the operation in the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

The White House also believes that the large-scale Israeli operation in Rafah will not contribute to the achievement of his goal – the defeat of the Hamas group in Gaza.
