Some would say that Egypt deployed tanks and troops across the Gaza border so Israel would take them seriously. Some would say it's just to keep the Gazians out, along with their billion dollar wall. Smart people say both.

Letting them in would basically give Israel an excuse to constantly violate the border.

Look what's happening in DR Congo right now.

Rwanda basically unofficially invades DRC whenever it likes on the grounds that some Hutu went there. The situation is different in terms of tech - Israel can send "surgical" strikes instead of M23, but the same principle applies.

Netanyahu, in an interview on ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” suggested civilians in Rafah could flee north

What a fucking joke, really. "What are you doing in your homes up north? Run south so we don't bomb you. What are you doing south? We totally have an excuse to kill you now"

Especially after that interview with soldiers saying that they considered civilians as "complicit" if they had "ignored" the instructions to move out of their homes.

Aurix ,

It is not a joke it is genocide with manipulative excuses.

This is the best summary I could come up with:

The threat to suspend the Camp David Accords, a cornerstone of regional stability for nearly a half-century, came after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said sending troops into Rafah was necessary to win the four-month war against the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

The standoff between Israel and Egypt, two close U.S. allies, took shape as aid groups warned that an offensive in Rafah would worsen the already catastrophic humanitarian situation in Gaza, where around 80% of residents have fled their homes and where the U.N. says a quarter of the population faces starvation.

Netanyahu, in an interview on ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” suggested civilians in Rafah could flee north, saying there are “plenty of areas” that have been cleared by the army.

“An Israeli offensive on Rafah would lead to an unspeakable humanitarian catastrophe and grave tensions with Egypt,” European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell wrote on X.

The White House, which has rushed arms to Israel and shielded it from international calls for a cease-fire, has also warned against a Rafah ground operation under current circumstances, saying it would be a “disaster” for civilians.

Israel and Egypt fought five wars before signing the Camp David Accords, a landmark peace treaty brokered by then-U.S. President Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s.
