Nearly 300,000 people have fled Rafah in the past week, the main UN aid agency for Palestinians in Gaza said on Sunday. The city, on the southern edge of the Gaza Strip, has become a haven for more than a million displaced people over the past seven months, fleeing Israeli aggression.

The UN agency, known as UNRWA, made the announcement on social media hours after the Israeli government issued new evacuation orders to other areas of Rafah and Gaza.
