Biden administration calls ‘settlements’ illegal as Israel gears up for Rafah op

“Jerusalem Minute” Middle East correspondent Josh Hasten, Ep. 8

JNS CEO and Jerusalem bureau chief Alex Traiman and Middle East correspondent Josh Hasten discuss U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s statement that building in the West Bank is not “compatible” with international law and his reversal of the Pompeo doctrine. They analyze the timing of such a statement in the middle of a war and right after a terrorist attack last week on the highway between Jerusalem and Ma’ale Adumim.

They also delve into escalation to the north by the Israel Defense Forces against Hezbollah rocket and missile attacks launched from Lebanon; Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan for the Gaza Strip after the war with Hamas ends; and the IDF military operation set for the southern Gaza city of Rafah.
