The United Nations says around 600,000 Palestinians have been forcibly displaced by the Israeli military in Rafah in the past ten days. They're being ordered to live in overcrowded refugee camps The International Rescue Committee (IRC) says it is facing “significant disruptions to its humanitarian operations” following Israel’s ground operations in Rafah, southern Gaza, which resulted in the closure of the Rafah crossing and a blockade on entry of humanitarian workers and aid. “An IRC and Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) emergency medical team (EMT) was initially scheduled to enter Gaza through the Rafah crossing on May 13. They remain unable to do so due to the persistent closure of the crossing,” the IRC said in a statement. Kiryn Lanning, IRC team lead for the occupied Palestinian territory, said: “I have recently returned from Gaza, where the scale of the crisis defies imagination. Facilities across southern Gaza have been repurposed into makeshift shelters overflowing into the streets. This displaced population is now facing acute shortages of basic necessities such as food, water, and adequate sanitation.” Al Jazeera’s Tareq Abu Azzoum has the latest in Deir el-Balah in central Gaza.
