Lacroix clarified that it is uncertain whether the UN would be this third party, highlighting the procedural steps involving the UN Security Council for deploying peacekeeping forces.

Previously, on June 26, Israeli forces conducted airstrikes across Gaza, with reports of intense fighting in Rafah. Residents reported clashes in the Tel Al-Sultan neighborhood, where Hamas and Islamic Jihad fighters engaged Israeli forces with anti-tank rockets and mortar bombs. Medics confirmed two Palestinian deaths in one Israeli missile strike in Rafah.
