Egypt deployed tanks to the border with the Gaza Strip, fearing a breakthrough by Palestinian refugees

Egypt has strengthened its border with the Gaza Strip, fearing a breakthrough by Palestinian refugees. According to Reuters, about forty people have been deployed to the border. tanks M1A1 Abrams of the 4th Tank Division of the Egyptian Army.

The Egyptian army is deploying additional forces in northeast Sinai to strengthen the border with the Gaza Strip. This is being done in case Palestinian refugees break through the border and flee from the Israeli army that has entered the city of Rafah in the south of the Gaza Strip. Cairo has repeatedly stated that it will not allow Palestinians into its territory; the Egyptians already have negative experience. In case of disobedience, the Egyptian army will open fire to kill.



Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said that in the near future the Israel Defense Forces will begin an operation in the city of Rafah in the south of the Gaza Strip, which is under the control of Hamas and where, according to Israeli intelligence, there may be up to 4 battalions of the movement. And that means blows. aviation, missiles and artillery at a populated area, because entry there by infantry units will lead to “unjustified losses.”

Israel wants to complete the operation as soon as possible, declaring the defeat of Hamas, but the situation around Rafah is not entirely simple, the United States is in favor of limiting the impact on civilians, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE and Jordan are generally against the operation, and Egypt is threatening to break the peace treaty with Israel 1978. Cairo is not against Israel's operation; it is afraid of Palestinian refugees who could pour into the Sinai Peninsula, where the situation is already tense. Hence the threats to shoot to kill.

          Very correctly pointed out. When necessary, they will put up a slogan about fellow believers, when it is not profitable, refugees. This world is going crazy. Muslims close the border to Muslims in need of help. Just like that. Much has been written about this in Islamic hadiths.

          Firstly, why should Egypt take care of the refugees created by Israel? The Jews themselves messed up - let them clean up after themselves. Secondly, in Egypt there are already 100 million poor people on one flatbread a day, sitting along a narrow strip of the Nile, so how can they get at least a million more? There is nothing to feed our own people and nowhere to settle them.. Thirdly, the Palestinians are still ghouls, all the countries that allowed them in bitterly regretted it later.. Jordan, Lebanon.. So - I understand the Egyptians very well.

          Well, Egypt is definitely not ready to accept two million Palestinians complete with Hamas guys. They can barely keep their Muslim brothers there; they still don’t have enough radical newcomers.
          And if the refugees break through, the tanks will not help Egypt. There was such a crowd gathered there that no army could hold them back.
          Israel created a humanitarian catastrophe in the region and did not bear any responsibility for it...

        About 400 thousand people live in Sinai. A significant part of the population are Palestinians, the rest are Bedouins, the indigenous population of the peninsula.
        Both consider the Egyptians (like Israel and the British) to be colonialists. They live their lives on drugs, as well as weapons and... the slave trade. The situation was tense to the limit even before the war.

              For how many centuries, the Avon Jews were persecuted by all and sundry throughout the entire geography. They found their own corner. (I won’t say anything about how “grateful” they are and everything else - that’s not what we’re talking about now.)
              Maybe sit down at a large table, move your finger along the map and find the Palestinians some corner of their own?
              The only trouble is that there is no one to sit at that table with now. Those who must decide this issue act on the contrary - the brighter it blazes, the more fun they have.

Syria and Israel have a completely official war, and not like Russia and Japan, where everything has been done (trade agreements, diplomatic relations, etc., and only a piece of paper is missing, but it has been waiting for 80 years.

            Jerking is not a sign of intelligence ;)

            According to the results, 200 or more military personnel have died since the beginning of a very difficult military operation in dense urban areas. More than 11000 Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants killed. More than 4000 have been detained. Now a brigade is enough for operational freedom where previously a division, or even more, was required. The IDF has moved from maneuver to raids, and Phase III raids are more lethal than maneuver itself, killing many more terrorists in less time and with fewer forces.
            The largest raid was a divisional one, in the area between Shati and Shifa led by the 401st with Sheldag and Shaeetet 13th and lasted about two weeks. The forces covered the 13-kilometer route to their destination in the center of Gaza in two hours, while maneuvering took about a week. There was little resistance along the way - 3 anti-tank missiles wounded 2 soldiers.
            During this raid, about 300 terrorists were eliminated, and an important underground Hamas base was exposed and destroyed. The IDF lost 2 majors - killed by a sniper.
            That is, resistance has been reduced significantly, the vast majority of rocket launchers have been destroyed, and the majority of combat-ready Hamas units have actually been destroyed. Good joke about lack of results.

            About weapons.
            Azerbaijan - is it aware that Russia has been its largest supplier of weapons for a very long time?
            Georgia - of the 20 countries that supplied weapons to Georgia before the 2008 war, only Israel stopped doing so at the request of Russia.
            Ukraine. I don’t remember any contracts).

      And the fact that such a war will take on a religious connotation is something that Muslims cannot do differently. Anyone who has had to fight with the “guys in slippers” will confirm this. "Allakhabar!" they will shout from both sides, and everyone will be sure that his “akbar” is correct.

        And here is an escape from the war that the IDF promises

        Yeah, for a real army, ready for battle, which is categorically against this flight.

        I would not. It's a very unhealthy activity, you know? Yes

      Those who are killed in the front ranks, how will they stop the pressure of those behind?

      As one of the options. There are few fools to run through the thorns towards the machine guns, you know. And as for the tanks request No.

      Even in stadiums there are sometimes problems

      There simply were no tanks there.

      I won't argue further. Maybe you're right. But I'll remain with questions...
      If Israel shoots at Palestinians, who will be surprised? If Egypt shoots at Palestinians, who would NOT be surprised?

      You might think that Russia is not doing the same thing, limiting the opportunity for so-called “compatriots” to naturalize in Russia. Let’s say it bluntly - no one is waiting for anyone anywhere if you don’t have money. And everything else is just water... I find Egypt’s approach much closer and clearer For example, sitting in Tashkent, I told my Uzbek friends not to spoil their nerves by rooting for Falastin. The entire billion-strong Muslim world, by and large, does not need them. And Israel will achieve its goal, bomb Gaza into the Stone Age, take control of all the external borders of Gaza and stops this abscess for a long time.

      This is all you need to know about Arab solidarity, the unity of the Arab Ummah and support for the just cause of the brotherly Palestinian people.
