In a recent development, Egypt has announced the opening of its Rafah Border crossing, paving the way for humanitarian aid to enter Gaza. This move follows Israel’s agreement to allow a limited supply, marking the first relaxation in the 10-day ‘total siege’ of Gaza.
This development comes on the heels of US President Joe Biden’s visit to Tel Aviv on Wednesday, where he expressed solidarity with Israel. President Biden is expected to address the nation today to provide updates on the Israel-Hamas conflict. Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak made his way to Israel on Thursday for a meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu.
Despite diplomatic efforts, the conflict between Israel and Hamas continues. Hamas has reportedly intensified its rocket attacks following President Biden’s departure.
