Over 1,4 mln lives under threat as Israeli forces targets Rafah

By Staff Writer

PALESTINE’s envoy in Zimbabwe fears that around 1,4 million citizens lives are under threat following the decision by Israeli forces to target Rafah.

The diplomat said the move is aimed at annihilating Palestinians in Gaza in a move which has seen the Israeli military ordering Palestinians to move out of Rafah in preparation to launch its attack to Rafah a city in southern Gaza with which is the last resort for 1,4 million of civilians displaced by the brutal Israeli aggression or genocide.

The order follows a night of intense Israeli bombardment that killed 22 people in Rafah, including eight children.

Ambassador Dr Tamer Almassri warns that a military offensive in Rafah would cause mass atrocities and it would cause mass civilian deaths considering this a dangerous escalation that will have consequences, calling on the international community and Israel’s allies to put a stop to this.

Dr Almassri stresses that the Palestinian people will not leave their homeland and will continue to resist the Israeli occupation through all means necessary according to the international law to achieve their independent state. Israeli policies of genocide, and displacement will never liquidate the Palestinian cause but rather increase instability within the region and the world.

At least 34,683 Palestinians have been killed and 78,018 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 2023.
