IDF ‘tactical pause’ to allow Gaza aid criticised by Israel leader Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has criticised the army for its decision to pause its military offensive along the main road in southern Gaza.

The Israel Defence Forces have said the daily ‘tactical pause’ will be observed between 8 in the morning and 7 at night, to allow desperately needed aid in through the Kerem Shalom crossing.

But it insists its military offensive will continue in Rafah to root out Hamas.
