Israel denies deadly Rafah strike on displacement camp | BBC News

Israel has denied launching a deadly air strike on a camp of displaced people in al-Mawasi, on the coast west of Rafah, on Tuesday.

The strike followed mounting international pressure on Israel in the wake of Sunday’s air strike in Rafah which killed at least 45 people, according to the Hamas-run health ministry, which Israel called a "tragic mishap".

But Israeli officials claim they did not organise the al-Mawasi strike on Tuesday, which Palestinian officials say resulted in 21 people being killed, with a further 64 injured.

Meanwhile, Algeria has become the latest country to ask for a UN resolution in hopes a ceasefire agreement can be agreed between the two sides.
