Israel-Gaza: Half of Gaza’s population living in Rafah says UN

In Gaza, the United Nations says it believes more than a million people are now living in the southern settlement of Rafah on the border with Egypt.

That’s almost half of Gaza’s total population, who have been urged to flee from their homes towards the south, but not allowed to leave the enclave.

The overcrowding is making the distribution of aid even more difficult, and raising fears of disease.
