International relief organizations call for urgent action for Rafah

Gaza - Together - 13 human rights and relief organizations warned countries about the need to 'take urgent measures to prevent crimes against humanity' in the city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. The statement explained that the Israeli government "clearly" revealed its intention to expand its military operations in Rafah, ignoring the binding resolution issued by the Security Council demanding an immediate ceasefire. The statement indicated that humanitarian and human rights organizations have repeatedly warned that the planned Israeli ground attack against Rafah 'will destroy the lives and humanitarian aid of more than 1.3 million civilians.'
