Egypt rejects any plans to expel Palestinians from Gaza

Gaza-4
Cairo, Oct 10 (Prensa Latina) Egypt will reject any plan by Israel to expel Palestinians from the Gaza Strip and resettle them in the neighboring Sinai Peninsula, a security source informed on Tuesday.

Some Israeli parties and politicians want to displace Palestinians from their lands, warned the source, which was quoted by the online version of the Al Ahram newspaper.

“Egypt opposes and will oppose this project, also unanimously rejected by the Palestinian people, who cling to their rights and their land,” the source stressed.

This statement occurred shortly after a call by Richard Hecht, spokesman for the Israeli Army. “Anyone who can leave (Gaza to Egypt’s Sinai), I would advise them to do so,” Hecht said to the inhabitants of the coastal enclave, where more than two million people live.

More than 700,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes after the creation of the Israeli State in 1948, an event known as the Nakba (catastrophe, in Arabic).

Israel declared war and ordered the mobilization of 360,000 troops after an attack on Saturday by the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) on its territory, where nearly 1,000 deaths have been reported. Since then, the Gaza Strip has been under heavy bombings by planes and helicopters, which have killed nearly 800 people to date.
