1.5 million Gazans in Rafah left with nowhere to go


As Israel receives growing international warnings over its planned offensive in Rafah, the fate of Palestinians there is uncertain. Rafah straddles the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt. The city on the Gaza side is only 64 square kilometers. It houses some 1.5 million Palestinians who were pushed there due to Israeli bombardment. With 23,000 people per square kilometer, it is one of the most densely populated places on Earth.
