Israel has controlled the border with the city since the beginning of May, blocking the delivery of humanitarian aid and carrying out attacks

Around 1 million people have fled Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip, in the last three weeks, reported UNRWA (UN agency for Palestinian refugees), this Tuesday (May 28, 2024).

According to the UN agency (United Nations), people moved “even with nowhere safe to go and amidst bombings, lack of food and water, piles of rubbish and inadequate living conditions”.

Day after day, providing assistance and protection becomes almost impossible”, concluded UNRWA in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

Israel has controlled the border with Rafah since the beginning of the month. As a result, the delivery of humanitarian aid through the crossing was interrupted and thousands of civilians were forced to flee.

On Sunday (May 26), Israeli airstrikes killed at least 45 Palestinians and injured 249 in a camp for displaced people in Rafah.
