CBS Falsely Reports U.S. Warned Israel Not To Attack Rafah

CBS's Deborah Patta falsely reported that Netanyahu "stubbornly refuses to listen" to his American interlocutors. But the Israeli Prime Minister's order to devise an evacuation plan for Rafah's civilians means that he listened very attentively. The U.S. exhorted Israel to prepare a solid plan to protect Rafah's civilians before carrying out a military operation. The Biden administration did not tell Israel not to attack Rafah.
