President Joe Biden said he would halt some US arms shipments to Israel if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered a massive invasion of the town of Rafah.

“Civilians have been killed in Gaza as a result of those bombs and the other way they’ve gone after population centers,” Biden told CNN’s Erin Burnett in an exclusive interview, referring to the 2,000-pound bomb that Biden stopped shipping last week.

Biden’s comments echoed growing global alarm over Israel’s advance on Rafah, where more than 1 million Palestinians have fled and Hamas is believed to have regrouped after Israel’s destruction of much of the northern part of the strip.

Israeli military operations in Rafah have expanded from airstrikes to ground operations, including bulldozers, new satellite images obtained by CNN from the Planet Labs show show.
