International Court of Justice orders Israel to stop Rafah military offensive

The UN’s highest court is calling on Israel to stop its military offensive in the city of Rafah in southern Gaza. An estimated 1 million Palestinians have now been displaced from Rafah as the Israeli military presses deeper into the city. This comes as the military also said it had recovered the bodies of three Israeli hostages from the enclave. Approximately 125 Israeli hostages remain in captivity. Host Carol Hills speaks with Alon Pinkas, a former Israeli diplomat, about the status of the hostages and Israel’s growing isolation.
