Benjamin Netanyahu admits 'tragic mistake' after Israeli strike in Rafah kills 'at least 45 people' including displaced people burned alive in tents | 27 May 2024 | Benjamin Netanyahu has admitted "tragic mistake" after an Israeli strike in Rafah has allegedly killed 45 people including displaced people who burned alive in tents. The Israeli Prime Minister said Jerusalem was investigating Sunday night's strike in which the IDF targeted a "terrorist compound," killing senior Hamas officials Yassin Rabia and Khaled Nagar. Hamas claims the strike killed 45 people at a refugee centre by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees near Rafah, branding it a 'horrific massacre." The strike came two days after the International Court of Justice ordered Israel to end its military offensive in Rafah, where more than half of Gaza's population had sought shelter before Israel's recent incursion.
