Israeli troops take control of Rafah crossing on the Gaza side

The Israeli military took control of the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt amid ongoing airstrikes and ceasefire negotiations. Hamas had reportedly accepted a ceasefire proposal, but Israel deemed the terms inadequate and launched an operation in Rafah. This move drew condemnation and raised concerns about further escalation. The closure of Rafah crossing, a key aid passage, exacerbated the humanitarian crisis. Despite Hamas accepting the ceasefire, Israel continued its military operation in Rafah, with the US and other parties involved in negotiations to reach a resolution. There were differing accounts of why Israel rejected Hamas’ ceasefire response.
