Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to French President Emmanuel Macron’s call for Israel to halt attacks in Gaza by asserting that Hamas bears responsibility for civilian casualties. Netanyahu emphasized that Israel is making efforts to minimize harm to Gazan civilians and encourages them to leave conflict areas, while accusing Hamas of obstructing their evacuation to use them as human shields. He further claimed that Hamas is committing crimes in Gaza, warning that such actions could extend beyond the region in the future. Netanyahu argued that world leaders should condemn Hamas rather than Israel for these alleged crimes. Additionally, the Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman revised the death toll from last month’s Hamas attacks from 1,400 to approximately 1,200, without providing further explanation.
