Rafah Crossing : South End Of The Gaza Strip Hit By Military Strike
The area of the Rafah Border Crossing has been reportedly hit by a military strike.
- Rafah Crossing is at the south end of the Gaza Strip, a narrow slither of land that is home to 2.3 million people.
- It is wedged between Israel, Egypt, and the Mediterranean Sea.
- The crossing is controlled by Egypt.
- It is the only likely route for humanitarian aid to enter Gaza via Rafah from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula region.
- There are only two other border crossings: Erez, a border crossing with Israel in north Gaza, and Kerem Shalom, a commercial crossing between Israel and Southern Gaza.
