What is happening in Rafah?

In a major development in the Israel-Hamas war, Israeli forces have entered the southern Gazan city of Rafah, in an operation they say is aimed at destroying Hamas targets. For the 1.4 million people in Rafah, this presents yet another major challenge, with many having nowhere to go. In today’s podcast, we discuss Rafah’s significance in the broader context of the conflict, how the international community has responded, and whether a ceasefire is any closer.

Hosts: Billi FitzSimons and Sam Koslowski
