Given Israel’s ongoing attacks, Rafah’s civilian situation is very challenging, according to Jason Lee, the charity’s country director for the occupied Palestinian territory, who spoke with Al Jazeers.
Lee declared, “Day by day, the situation in Rafah continues to deteriorate.” “We are currently dealing with a tremendous human displacement situation; it is believed that over 1.3 million people are in Rafah, where there is no place for them to reside and no means of shelter. Wherever they can find space, civilians are makingshift shelters and tents along the sides of roads, in parking lots, next to mosques, schools, and hospitals.
Lee bemoaned the Palestinians in Gaza’s ongoing forced relocation as a result of Israeli shelling.
“Where does the populace still have places to go? In order to accomplish military goals, they have already been shifted from Gaza’s north and centre. They have been moved around like pieces on a chess board. Nothing remains for them to relocate.
Lee went on to say that if the Israeli assault on Rafah intensified, people would have no choice but to evacuate to regions that Israel had already demolished. These areas posed serious risks, especially for children, due to the prevalence of unexploded ordinance.
