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.
