Egyptians have expressed fear regarding the expulsion of Palestinians from Gaza to Sinai, amid the ongoing Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) aggression on the Strip.

BBC Arabic shared British documents that reveal that the Israeli Occupation drew up a secret plan back in 1971 to intentionally displace thousands of Palestinians from the Strip to northern Sinai.

Ever since the IOF occupied Palestinian territory as a result of the war in 1967, the Gaza Strip has been a problematic area for the Israeli Occupation, the article mentioned.

In Gaza's overcrowded refugee camps developed strong resistance groups that fight back against the Israeli Occupation's violations and aggression which have been ongoing for decades, it added

According to British estimates, when the Israeli Occupation occupied the Strip, there were 200,000 refugees in the area displaced from other areas in Palestine.

Those Palestinians were being cared for by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA).

They were living alongside 150,000 Palestinians who are original residents of the Gaza Strip.

Currently, there are over two million people residing in besieged Gaza, nearly 70 percent of whom are refugees.

For 26 consecutive days, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) continue its intensive aggression on the Gaza Strip, destroying homes and buildings, and causing extensive damage to roads and infrastructure.

In response to Israeli Occupation violations in the occupied Palestinian territories, Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, initiated Operation Aqsa Typhoon on Oct. 7, in response to decades of Israeli Occupation aggression on Palestinians

In contrast, the Israeli Occupation launched a military operation against the Gaza Strip, carrying out a series of intense airstrikes on various areas in the region.

According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza's latest updates, the number of martyrs in the region has risen to 8,525, including 3,542 children, 2,187 women, and 21,048 wounded.

As per Hebrew broadcasting authorities, the number of casualties among Israeli Occupation soldiers and settlers reached 1,538, including 324 soldiers, with nearly 5,000 others injured.
