About our Rafah news

Latest news on Rafah a city situated at the southern tip of the Gaza Strip, bordering Egypt. The Rafah Border Crossing is the primary point of exit and entry for the residents of Gaza, connecting them to Egypt and the broader world beyond Israel's controlled borders.

There was an agreement for a ceasefire in southern Gaza, coinciding with the reopening of the Rafah border crossing involving Egypt, Israel, and the U.S. However, the details about the effective enforcement of this ceasefire remain unclear.

The U.S. government advised its citizens in Gaza to move towards the Rafah border crossing in anticipation of its reopening. Moreover, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken mentioned the Rafah Crossing's opening after a meeting with Egypt's President, indicating international diplomatic engagements concerning the situation.

As of recent reports, Egypt closed the Rafah border crossing until further notice, with no clear indication of when it would reopen. This closure has further exacerbated the desperate situation for the residents of Gaza, adding to the humanitarian crisis unfolding in the region.
