With support dwindling, he issued a rare public apology but ultimately blamed Israeli defense and intelligence officials. Meanwhile, accusations that Israel and Hamas are violating international law prompted ICC Prosecutor Karim Khan to visit the Rafah crossing. Plus, UN Secretary-General António Guterres voiced his concern over the threat of a larger Middle East war. The Council's Ivo Daalder unpacks the unfolding conflict with Deborah Amos, Steven Erlanger, and Gideon Rachman on World Review.
