Egypt: No talks with Israel regarding the Rafah attack

Egypt says it has not held any talks with Israel regarding its possible military attack on Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. The head of the State Information Service, Diaa Rashwan, strongly denied a similar report in the Wall Street Journal yesterday evening.

Rashwan said that Egypt strongly rejects plans for such an attack and has clarified this position several times.

Rashwan said that the attack on the city near the Egyptian border, where about 1.5 million people are searching for shelter, will lead to “massacres, massive loss of life and widespread destruction.”

Report on preparations for the attack

The Wall Street Journal, citing Israeli government officials, reported that an attack was being prepared. To achieve this, civilians will be transferred from Rafah to Khan Yunis and other areas in Gaza, the newspaper reported, citing Egyptian government officials who were informed of the plans. In these areas, Palestinians should be supported with tents, food distribution sites and field hospitals.

And mobilize more reserve soldiers

As the Israeli army announced this morning, two additional reserve brigades are now being mobilized. It was supposed to undertake these “defensive and tactical operations in the Gaza Strip.” “The soldiers were trained in combat techniques and learned basic insights and lessons from previous combat and ground maneuvers in the Gaza Strip,” the statement said.
