About 360,000 people have fled Rafah, the UN said

An estimated 360,000 people have fled Gaza’s southernmost city of Rafah over the past week, according to the main UN aid agency in Gaza.

People flocked out of Rafah following Israel’s evacuation call ahead of a planned major ground offensive.

At least 60,000 people have fled since Sunday alone, according to UNRWA.

“Meanwhile, in northern #Gaza bombing & other evacuation orders have caused more displacement & fear for thousands of families. No place to go. There is NO security without a #ceasefire,” UNRWA said on Monday at X.
Philippe Lazzarini, UNRWA’s Commissioner-General, warned the day before that most people in the enclave had moved on average once a month to avoid Israeli bombardment.

“The ‘safe zone’ claim is false and misleading. There is no safe place in #Gaza. Period.” he said.
Top US officials reiterated strong warnings over the weekend against Israel’s invasion of Rafah, predicting that a ground attack would lead to widespread civilian casualties.

The United Nations and humanitarian groups estimate that between 1.2 and 1.4 million people lived in the Rafah area before the Israeli operation in the eastern part of the city began.

Satellite images reviewed by CNN last week showed that the tent cities in some parts of Rafah were emptier than ever.
