The town of Rafah is the last refuge of Palestinians displaced by the war from the rest of the Gaza Strip. In the area of ​​this city there are today about 1.4 million Palestinians, more than half of the population of the Palestinian enclave where the Israeli army is waging an offensive to destroy the Islamist movement Hamas.


The population of Rafah has increased fivefold since Israel launched its counteroffensive against Hamas in Gaza. About half of Gaza's 2.2 million residents are now in Rafah "living in makeshift structures, tents or in the open," the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) noted on February 1.

These military actions are crossing a red line. According to the Saudi al-Arabiya station, Egypt has already decided to limit security communications with Israel, except for those related to truce negotiations and a prisoner exchange between Israel and Hamas.
