Rafah Under Fire
In the gritty sands of Rafah, a Palestinian city located on the southern tip of the Gaza Strip, a storm’s been brewing, the kind that sets your teeth on edge and has every cat in the alley bristling. This ain’t the first rodeo for anyone who’s spent time in the cauldron of Middle East tensions, but it’s gearing up to be one of the dustiest.
Earlier this week, Rafah, the city that’s become a reluctant host to over 1.4 million souls looking for a sliver of safety, got a taste of hell from above. The skies opened, not with rain, but with the iron hail of air strikes, leaving at least 52 folks not lucky enough to tell their tale, courtesy of the decision-makers who continue to rain down hellfire on the terrorist harboring territory.
Israel launched a special forces operation that freed two Israeli hostages in Rafah amid airstrikes, which local health officials said killed 67 people and wounded dozens in the southern Gaza city https://t.co/w5gcBFe4iE pic.twitter.com/0wvCwsZ892
