Rafah: Is Israel’s ground invasion of southern city imminent?

Israel’s new orders for more residents of Rafah to leave are being viewed with concern, not only by Palestinians being asked to uproot yet again, but also by observers who see the demand as a precursor to a potential ground invasion.

The Americans have been warning Israel against that for weeks now. Also of note; evacuation notices for people in the north of Gaza, where there has already been prolonged bombing and fighting.

And a warning, there are distressing images in this report.
