Israel Takes Full Control of Gaza-Egypt Border, Intensifies Military Operations in Southern Gaza Amid International Concerns


Israel has announced full control of the Philadelphia Corridor, a strategic area bordering Gaza and Egypt, intensifying military operations in southern Gaza. The Israeli military claims the corridor was used by Hamas to smuggle weapons from Egypt into Gaza. Despite international concerns over rising civilian casualties, especially in Rafa, Israel’s National Security advisor suggests the offensive will continue until the year’s end. This development could strain Israel-Egypt relations, given the historical peace accord and Egypt’s control over the area since 2005.
