The United Nations Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA) noted in a post on X that the images from Rafah serve as further evidence that Gaza is a “hell on earth”.

The Senior Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri characterized the assault as a “massacre” and pointed fingers at the US for providing weapons and finances to Israel.

The senior military prosecutor of Israel, Major-General Yifat Tomer Yerushalmi, censured the incident as “extremely serious” and announced an investigation into the horrific occurrence. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confessed that it was a “tragic error”.

Did American actress Candice King respond to the Rafah catastrophe?

On the flip side, reporter Sulaiman Ahmed posted a video on X, formerly Twitter, which has gone viral on the platform, amassing over 1.7 million views. The video is accompanied by the caption, “ACTRSS CANDICE KING CALLS OUT RAFAH MASSACRE AND BEHEADED BABIES. The beheaded babies should draw the line for us all.”

Nevertheless, the individual showcased in the video is not the actress Candice King. She is, in fact, a South African travel influencer named Candice King who frequently shares Pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel content on Instagram.

In her latest video posted on Instagram and circulated by Ahmed on X, she expressed her fury over the incident in Rafah, stating, “BABY! BABY! What the hell is wrong with you?”

She clarified that she is not condemning the Israeli government but is questioning those who remain “silent”. She asserted that there “are photos and pictures of beheaded babies in Rafah. The beheaded babies should draw the line for us all.”

In her enraged video, the influencer proceeded to voice out that “And if it hasn’t drawn a line for you, you are… You’re cooked. You’re cooked. I’m not crazy.”

As she exclaimed and shouted to emphasize her point, she declared: “I’m not crazy. You’re crazy! Because you’re not doing anything and you think this is normal. Me right now, this is normal behavior. You’re not acting normally.”

“You can witness such things and remain silent, you’re crazy! You should lose your sanity. In fact, if you’re not going to lose your sanity, I urge you, unfollow me and block me. Because you’re a psychopath, and I don’t want to be associated with such individuals,” she concluded.

US affirms Israel must exhaust all measures to safeguard civilians

One of the residents, who was hospitalized at the Kuwaiti Hospital in Rafah, informed Al-Jazeera that the “tents were melting and the people’s bodies were melting” following the assault.

According to a spokesperson from the United States National Security Council, the photographs of the situation were distressing.

Emphasizing that Israel is entitled to go after Hamas, the spokesperson informed NBC News that “we understand this strike resulted in the death of two senior Hamas terrorists who are accountable for attacks on Israeli civilians. However, as we’ve constantly emphasized, Israel must take every possible precaution to shield civilians.”

Netanyahu has come under increasing scrutiny for the way in which Israel is handling the conflict, which commenced with the Hamas-initiated attack on October 7. According to reports, more than 1,200 individuals have lost their lives, and 250 others were taken hostage, with 125 still believed to be held captive in Gaza.

As per Gaza health authorities, approximately 35,000 Palestinians have lost their lives in Gaza until now.
