The conflict in Gaza has escalated, causing approximately 450,000 individuals to flee Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip after Israeli evacuation orders were issued earlier this month. Satellite imagery has revealed an influx of people in central Gaza as violence and strikes have heightened in parts of the north. Amid this turmoil, hospitals in the region are facing the threat of closure, with worries mounting about food scarcity as the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt has been shut down for a week, as highlighted by warnings from the Gaza Health Ministry and the U.N. humanitarian affairs office.

Faltering negotiations between Israel and Hamas have been acknowledged by Qatar’s prime minister, who described the talks as being "almost at a stalemate" due to fundamental differences between the parties. The prime minister also mentioned that Israel's military intervention in Rafah has hindered progress at the negotiating table. UNRWA has emphasized the dire situation in Rafah by sharing images of deserted streets, noting the constant struggles faced by people including exhaustion, hunger, and fear, while urging for an immediate cease-fire. Additionally, Human Rights Watch reported that Israeli forces have conducted a minimum of eight strikes on aid workers' convoys and facilities in Gaza since October 2023, despite prior coordination with aid groups, citing one such incident targeting World Central Kitchen workers. The escalating conflict has taken a heavy toll, with the death toll in Gaza climbing to 35,173 and over 79,000 individuals being injured since the onset of the conflict. The Gaza Health Ministry has highlighted that most of the casualties are women and children, although the distinction between civilians and combatants is not made. Israel has reported about 1,200 casualties from Hamas's attack on October 7, with more than 300 soldiers included, and 272 soldiers killed since its military operation began in Gaza.
