The United States on Tuesday cautioned Israel against causing "significant further displacement" of Palestinians in southern Gaza amid its conflict with Hamas, per The Associated Press. Senior American officials reportedly said President Joe Biden's administration was seeking to avoid large-scale civilian casualties or mass displacements like what was seen prior to the ongoing temporary truce. This came as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asserted his troops would hit Gaza with full force once the ceasefire comes to an end.
