(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – According to recent reports, the Biden administration has refused to share critical intelligence with Israel regarding the location of Hamas’ leadership in Gaza unless Israel acquiesces to demands that it doesn’t proceed with a military operation in a refuge for approximately 1.3 million Palestinians and Hamas’ last stronghold: Rafah.

A source cited in these reports details how the Biden administration is working with great urgency to prevent an “Israeli invasion of Rafah.” The source added that to encourage cooperation with the request the administration was offering Israel “sensitive intelligence” that would help the Jewish nation’s military “pinpoint” where Hamas leadership is located in addition to uncovering the terrorist organization’s hidden tunnels.

The report details that the United States’ decision is an effort to address concerns Israel wouldn’t do enough to guarantee that more than a million Gazan innocents who have taken shelter in Rafah in the event of an invasion were safe.

To sweeten the deal, American officials are offering assistance to Israel to deal with Rafah evacuees, which would include the provision of shelters to enable Israel to build temporary shelters and construct “delivery systems for food, water, and medicine.”

So far, hundreds of thousands of people have fled the incoming invasion of eastern Rafah, relocating to Al-Mawasi, an expanded humanitarian zone, as part of an operation started by the Israeli military on May 6th.

Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, spokesman for the IDF, revealed Saturday evening that terrorists had been killed, the military had confiscated weapons, and uncovered underground tunnels as part of “tactical advances” that have “avoided densely populated areas.”
