Kamala Harris Warns Against Israeli Invasion of Rafah, Does Not Rule Out “Consequences” from U.S.

HeadlineMar 25, 2024

Over the weekend, U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris warned against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invading Rafah. She spoke to Rachel Scott of ABC News.

Vice President Kamala Harris: “We have been clear in multiple conversations and in every way that any major military operation in Rafah would be a huge mistake.”

Rachel Scott: “A mistake, but would there be consequences if he does move forward?”

Vice President Kamala Harris: “Well, we’re going to take it one step at a time, but we’ve been very clear in terms of our perspective on whether or not that should happen.”

Rachel Scott: “Are you ruling out that there would be consequences from the United States?”

Vice President Kamala Harris: “I am ruling out nothing.”

This comes as Israel continues to carry out attacks across Gaza, where the death toll has topped 32,200. This is a Palestinian man named Younis Kassab in Rafah.

Younis Kassab: “Israel does not want a ceasefire. Instead, it wants to continue exterminating the Palestinian people. This is what Israel and America are planning simultaneously. They do not want a ceasefire. … Israel seeks genocide against the Palestinian people, and particularly the Gaza Strip. And this is a crime.”
