The United Nations and regional sources report thousands moving from northern and central Gaza to the south, potentially leading to a mass exodus into Egypt and establishing a buffer zone. Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly opposes the forced displacement of Palestinians, emphasizing adherence to international humanitarian law and the Fourth Geneva Convention. Analysts indicate Israel’s strategy might pressure Palestinians to move towards Sinai, aligning with Israel’s goals to annex Gaza land This could lead to confrontations and further reduce Gaza’s population density. Egyptian military experts, including Major Generals Samir Farag and Nasr Salem, assert Egypt’s readiness to handle potential border crises, balancing humanitarian aid for Gaza with national security. Egypt’s response involves diplomatic efforts for a sustainable conflict resolution. In conclusion, the Gaza situation and its impact on Egypt’s borders underscore the need for balancing humanitarian aid, national security, and regional stability.
