War in the Middle East, Hamas blocks exit from Rafah. Attack on a refugee camp in Gaza: “At least 51 dead”


By John

Hamas blocked exits from the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt for foreigners, dual nationals and wounded Palestinians: around 700 people, who had been waiting to leave Gaza since the early hours of the morning, were stopped.

And they will be blocked – the militiamen said – until Israel guarantees that the ambulances with the wounded will be able to leave the Strip. A response to Friday’s attack on the convoy of emergency vehicles in front of the al Shifa hospital which the Jewish state, but also the USA, claim are carrying militiamen and weapons. An attack, in any case, which is ‘horrifying’, the UN secretary general, Antonio Guterres, once again thundered. Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden has hinted that there is progress in achieving a humanitarian pause in the war in Gaza. He declared this to journalists while leaving a mass in Delaware. To a reporter who asked him the question, the president replied ‘Yes’, giving a ‘thumbs up’ gesture of approval.
