Manar Eissa

Egypt has initiated the construction of another camp for internally displaced individuals in Khan Younis city, situated in the southern part of the besieged Palestinian Gaza Strip. 

According to Al-Qahera News TV channel, the new camp, slated to be completed by the end of the week, will boast a capacity of 400 tents, accommodating around 4,000 people. It will be fully equipped with electricity, water, and restroom facilities.

This endeavor follows Egypt’s establishment of a similar camp for displaced Palestinians in Khan Younis back in December 2023.

Upon the completion of the second camp, plans are underway to establish a field hospital and two humanitarian aid distribution centers, with one in Gaza’s city of Rafah and another camp in Deir al-Balah. 

The ongoing Israeli escalation since October 7, 2023, following a deadly surprise attack by Gaza, has led to a devastating toll on Gaza’s residents. According to data from Gaza’s health ministry, the conflict has claimed the lives of 29,606 Palestinians and left 69,737 others wounded as of Saturday.

Amidst the dire situation, the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza has served as a crucial lifeline, facilitating the delivery of relief supplies generously donated by Egypt, other countries, and various local and international organizations.
