Israeli Occupation Foreign Affairs Minister, Israel Katz, stated on Sunday that the Israeli Occupation army had relocated one million Palestinians to the south and must relocate them again prior to the Rafah operation, as reported by the Israeli Occupation radio. 

Amid international concern over potential aggression by the Israeli Occupation on Rafah, which shelters over a million displaced people from all areas of the Gaza Strip, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) confirmed that the occupation's declared ground attack on Rafah would be catastrophic.

They added that there is no safe place in Gaza, with forced displacement pushing people to Rafah where they are trapped with no options.

Hamas stated that the occupation's attack on Rafah is a continuation of the genocide war and forced displacement attempts against the Palestinian people. They criticized the Israeli Occupation government for disregarding the decisions of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which approved urgent measures, including stopping any steps that could be considered acts of genocide.

The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) continue their aggression on the Gaza Strip for the 156th consecutive day, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis, using siege weapons, resulting in almost daily deaths due to drought and malnutrition, especially among infants.
