Israel expands military operations amid dire warnings from aid groups on Rafah

Date:

Israel ordered more evacuations from parts of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, and from Jabalya and Beit Lahia in the north, as it widens operations in the besieged enclave, despite dire warnings from aid groups and allies.

In Rafah, the last refuge for hundreds of thousands of displaced people for months, terrified residents packed up to flee once again. Western Rafah was “visibly emptying before our eyes,” Louise Wateridge, a spokeswoman for United Nations Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA), said on X. A resident of the Al-Awda neighborhood, meters away from the evacuation zone, told The Washington Post that the streets were emptying out.
