Qatar has urged the international community to take immediate action to prevent a potential "genocide" in Rafah, a city located in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. This appeal was issued on Wednesday following Israel's takeover of the Palestinian side of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt, with threats of a broader assault.

In a statement released by its Foreign Ministry, Qatar emphasized the urgency of international intervention to prevent the invasion of the city and the potential commission of mass atrocities. The Qatari government's call to action highlights the growing concerns over the escalating violence in the region and the severe implications for civilian safety in Rafah.
