Abdoulaye Bathily told the UN Security Council there are numerous alarming signs of such a slide and urged all political leaders to put aside “their self-interests” and come together to negotiate and reach a compromise “to restore the dignity of their motherland.”

Laporan, LSM: Mesir Bangun “Daerah Berpagar” untuk Pengungsi Gaza di Sinai

CAIRO: Egypt is constructing a walled camp in the Sinai Peninsula to receive displaced Palestinian civilians from the Gaza Strip, a US media report and an Egyptian human rights monitor said on Friday.
But Israel, which is waging a four-month-old war against Hamas militants in the territory, said it had no plans to move civilians there, as it prepares an offensive in Rafah, in Gaza’s far south.
The Wall Street Journal said an eight-square-mile (21-square-kilometer) “walled enclosure” was under construction on the Egyptian side of the border.

Sumber: Mesir Siapkan Area di Perbatasan Gaza yang Dapat Digunakan untuk Penampungan Warga Palestina

Egypt is preparing an area at the Gaza border which could accommodate Palestinians in case an Israeli offensive into Rafah prompts an exodus across the frontier, four sources said, in what they described as a contingency move by Cairo.
Egypt, which denied making any such preparations, has repeatedly raised the alarm over the possibility that Israel’s devastating Gaza offensive could displace Palestinians into Sinai — something Cairo says would be completely unacceptable- echoing warnings from Arab states such as Jordan.
