Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed Israel can “stand alone”, after the US warned arms shipments could be stopped if he orders a full-scale invasion of Rafah in Gaza.

Thousands of people have already fled the southern city after the Israeli military began what it called a “limited” operation on Monday.

US President Joe Biden has repeatedly warned against the operation, saying that it would cross a “red line”.

But Mr Netanyahu dismissed the US warning, saying Israel would fight on.

“If we need to … we will stand alone. I have said that if necessary we will fight with our fingernails,” the prime minister said.
