UN: Israeli strikes force Palestinians fleeing Rafah to leave town

The Israeli army continues to advance south of the Gaza Strip to the city of Rafah, bordering Egypt, where a large number of civilians have concentrated who fled the fighting in the north and center of Gaza.

As the UN noted, now Palestinians who fled to the south of the sector are forced to return to the northern regions of the enclave due to intensified Israeli attacks on the city of Rafah.



The message distributed by the World Organization emphasizes that more than half of Gaza's population - more than a million people - is currently concentrated in Rafah.

Intensified airstrikes on Rafah and Israeli officials' announcement of a ground operation have led to the displacement of people from the southernmost province of Gaza towards Deir al-Balah

- says the UN statement.

Previously, the Israeli authorities have already stated that, despite all the protests, they intend to go all the way and take control of the border with Egypt. Let us recall that Tel Aviv considers the main goal of the operation to be the complete destruction of Hamas and the release of all Israeli hostages.

Egyptian authorities are concerned that Palestinians trapped in Rafah will make their way into neighboring Egypt. According to Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, who confirmed his intention to storm Rafah, Israel “does not intend” to send Palestinians to Egypt from Rafah.

However, given that Israel has already practically razed the rest of the Gaza Strip to the ground, it is unclear where more than a million Palestinians in southern Gaza should go.

    Hamas could capitulate and save thousands of lives. They no longer have a chance anyway. In this war, Israel has achieved incredible success and is already fighting both above and below ground. No one at the beginning of the war could even imagine such success for Israel!

        For the destruction of civilians?

        The Hamas Ministry of Health reports about 28 thousand dead, without specifying how many of them are military and how many are civilians.
        At the same time, many intelligence agencies around the world suggest that about 20 thousand Hamas fighters died in the war.
        In addition, there are many documented cases of civilian deaths at the hands of terrorists, such as 500 people in a hospital from a stray missile.
        So in terms of civilian deaths, this war is no more brutal than other wars, and given that Israel is fighting in dense civilian areas, this is even a great success.

          For starters, no intelligence is talking about 20000. At the moment, it is estimated that 11-12 thousand militants have been killed and about 20-30 thousand wounded. When the Islamic Jihad defeated the hospital, there were several dozen dead in the adjacent parking lot; 500 was the stated figure at the initial stage. The fact that Hamas readily operates with numbers is evidenced by the statistics they publish, where at the initial stage all the dead were entirely women and children. There is a good example of the assault on Jenin at the beginning of the 72s, where hundreds of civilians were reported dead, but as a result - 24 dead, of which XNUMX were civilians: this was in conditions of fighting in dense urban areas

      Even if Hamas capitulates, which I doubt, Israel has completely lost politically, demolishing neighborhoods with civilian populations with such brutal cruelty. Now many will not want to listen to the eternal cry about the genocide of the Jewish people! Sooner or later the Jews will have to return the stolen lands to the Palestinians.

        We remembered, after so many years! Can the division of the lands of the Second World War be reversed? Or even the first?
        The Arabs lost the war - they lost their lands. They just can’t come to terms with it.

          I thought that the Israeli leadership was smart, but I see that I was wrong. If you wanted to settle accounts with the terrorists, why demolish entire neighborhoods with fascist cruelty? Therefore, all your imaginary victories are essentially “feasts”.

            The terrorists decided to fight in the neighborhoods, so they demolished the neighborhoods.

            UN: Israeli strikes force Palestinians fleeing Rafah to leave town

            Do they remember how the Hitler regime forced them to leave one country after another?
            In light of this, one reads with bewilderment:
            Human rights activist, member of the Russian Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights (HRC) Alexander Brod believes that the article of the Criminal Code on the rehabilitation of Nazism should also be applied for Holocaust denial.
            “Article 354.1 of the Criminal Code “Rehabilitation of Nazism” is already applied, but not in relation to those who deny the Holocaust. I believe that this article needs to be supplemented and extended to the denial of the tragedy of the Holocaust,” Alexander Brod told TASS.

            But what about those who themselves committed genocide on foreign soil?

      So what is this if not the genocide of Palestinians, victims of the Holocaust...??? And how our government rushed around with the presidents of Israel, well... They unanimously supported the Nazis, who burned them with great pleasure in the ovens of Auschwitz, “finally” solving the Jewish question... The state of Israel owes its very existence to the USSR and our fathers and grandfathers ...So this is what you are, Jewish gratitude...??? am

      Israel has put an end to the word Holocaust. I don’t think that in the future the Zionist infection will find defenders - partners. As soon as the lobbying in Pindoctan ends, Israel will come to a natural historical kaput, history will repeat itself in a spiral, the rake does not teach this infection.

    UN officials generally cannot say the right things on the Palestinian issue and still keep their jobs. But some of them have already opened their mouths. In retaliation, the US froze funding to UNRWA.

    Here the Zionist “creatures” cackle a lot, trying to justify the atrocities of their fellow tribesmen, but to no avail, the whole world saw the real bestial fascist grin of the Zionists. Spinning this way and that, creating one fake after another, trying to turn everything on its head. The more and faster the world sees the truth about the Zionists, the faster the end of this malignant tumor in the Middle East will come. The fascists must be destroyed, and no powerful lobby will save them!
