The foreign ministers of the Group of Seven (G7) warned against the disastrous consequences of any military aggression by the Zionist regime against the city of Rafah.

Iran Press/Europe: Ministers from Italy, the UK, the US, France, Germany, Japan and Canada also slammed the "unacceptable number of civilians" killed in Gaza by the Israeli regime.

Israel has vowed to send troops into Gaza's overcrowded Rafah area.

The G7 foreign minister in their statement reiterated: "We reiterate our opposition to a full-scale military operation by the Israeli regime in Rafah that would have catastrophic consequences on the civilian population."

Israel has faced growing global opposition to the relentless war that has reduced much of Gaza to rubble, while its 2.4 million people have suffered under an Israeli siege.

In the 7th month of Israeli attacks on the besieged enclave, at least 33,899 Palestinians have been killed and 76,664 wounded.219
