Satellite images appear to show tent compounds near Rafah ahead of a possible Israeli offensive

Israel has said that it is preparing to evacuate Palestinians from the southern Gazan city of Rafah and launch its long-awaited offensive. The Israeli government claims that the bulk of Hamas’ remaining forces are hiding in Rafah. The Islamist militant group Hamas carried out the October
7 terror attacks that triggered the war. Over a million internally displaced Gazans are now living in Rafah. Media reports say Israel has bought 40,000 tents to accommodate those who will be forced to move again once it begins its assault, but this has yet to be officially confirmed. Satellite images show collections of tents near the city that were not there earlier this month.
