Egypt strongly condemned Israeli military operations in Palestinian city of Rafah, and Israeli control over the Palestinian side of Rafah crossing border.

Egypt stressed that this dangerous escalation threatens the lives of more than a million Palestinians who depend primarily on this crossing, as it is the main lifeline of the Gaza Strip, according to a statement issued by Egypt's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Moreover, Egypt called on the Israeli side to exercise utmost levels of restraint, and to stay away from a policy of brinkmanship that has long-term impact, and would threaten the fate of the strenuous efforts made to reach a sustainable truce inside Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, Egypt urged all influential international parties to intervene and exert the necessary pressure to defuse the current crisis and allow diplomatic efforts to achieve their desired results.
