Egypt ready to create camps in Rafah for Gaza refugees

Egypt has proposed the creation of camps for Palestinian refugees in the settlement of Rafah, TASS reports


The Al Arab Al Jadeed publication cited sources in informing that camps for refugees from Gaza will be located 3km from the border with Egypt. Their activities will be controlled by the Egyptian authorities. The Palestinians – fleeing from the northern Gaza territories – will be provided with urgent assistance there, since Cairo strongly opposes sending refugees from Gaza to the Sinai Peninsula.

According to the source, refugees in serious condition will be evacuated to hospitals in Egypt for medical care. Official comments from Cairo on this issue are not yet available.
