Fuerzas israelíes rodean la mitad oriental de Rafah

By Jordi Bou

May 10, 2024 - Tanques israelíes han capturado la carretera principal que divide Rafah, rodeando todo el lado oriental de la ciudad en el sur de la Franja de Gaza.

Hamas said it ambushed Israeli tanks near a mosque in the east of the city, a sign the Israelis had penetrated several kilometres from the east to the outskirts of the built-up area, Reuters reports.

Some 110,000 Palestinians have fled Rafah, according to UNRWA, since Israel began advancing troops towards the east of the city and intensifying attacks on May 6.

Nearly 35,000 Palestinians have been killed in the seven months of war, according to health authorities in the Hamas-controlled enclave who say thousands more dead are probably buried under rubble.

Israel launched the assault to annihilate Hamas after the Oct 7 attacks, in which around 1,200 people were killed according to Israeli tallies.

Some 128 hostages remain in Gaza and 36 have been declared dead, according to the latest Israeli figures.
