Gazans, Hamas claim IDF tanks have pushed deeper into Rafah, forcing people to flee again

Israeli tanks backed by warplanes and drones have allegedly advanced deeper into the western part of Rafah today, killing eight people, according to local residents and Hamas authorities.

Residents say the tanks moved into five neighborhoods after midnight. Heavy shelling and gunfire hit the tents of displaced families in the Al-Mawasi area, further to the west of the coastal enclave, they say.

Medics and Hamas media say eight Palestinians were killed in Al-Mawasi and many families fled north in panic. They do not identify the fatalities.

The Israeli military says it is looking into the report.
