Israel Prepares Rafah Evacuation With Help From US, Egypt - New Tent City Erected | Gulf Insider |

The Al-Araby Al-Jadeed report adds that the Egyptian Red Crescent has been readying camps in Khan Yunis over the past few months in preparation for the displacement of Palestinians from Rafah. Satellite images obtained by AP this week reportedly show a new tent compound near Khan Yunis.

In February, it was reported that Egypt built a security zone in the Sinai near the border with Rafah. Many speculated at the time that the security zone would aid Israeli plans to push Rafah's population into the Sinai desert. Egypt's State Information Service said on February 17 that the zone is a logistics hub on the Egyptian side of the Rafah border, which will be used to deliver aid into Gaza.

Israeli army radio reported that Tel Aviv is now expanding a designated "humanitarian zone" that will "accommodate around one million people." It said field hospitals have also been set up in the area. Army radio added that the zone will extend from Al-Mawasi on Gaza's southern coast towards Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.
