UN human rights chief warns Israel not to launch a full military operation in Rafah

# The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, says a potential full-fledged military operation into Rafah is terrifying, given the prospect that an extremely high number of civilians will likely be killed. Israel has carried out a wave of strikes in the southern city of Gaza, killing over 60 people, while rescuing two hostages from a building. Türk says a full military operation into Rafah may also mean the end of the small humanitarian aid, that has been entering and distributed with huge implications for all of Gaza.
