Tensions Mount between Israel and Egypt over the Rafah Crossing

Tensions mount between Israel and Egypt over the Rafah Crossing

Egypt has told the United States that Israel’s actions in Gaza are jeopardizing regional security. Foreign minister Sameh Shoukry discussed the need to restart aid deliveries to Gaza in a phone call with Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.

The two also discussed the Israeli seizure of the Palestinian side of the Rafah border crossing. Cairo says the presence of Israeli troops and tanks violates a 2007 treaty. Israel’s move has exacerbated simmering tensions between Egypt and Israel. So much so that Egypt has announced it will formally support a case brought by South Africa at the Interational Court of Justice, accusing Israel of committing genocidal acts in Gaza.
