Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry affirmed that any large-scale displacement of Palestinians due to Israeli Occupation aggression in Rafah would constitute a "war crime."

Shoukry emphasized on Tuesday that actions promoting or facilitating displacement are criminal acts and should be treated accordingly.

Shoukry stated that Egypt remains committed to advocating for the Palestinian people, indicating that the approach taken will depend on the prevailing circumstances.

Furthermore, the Egyptian Foreign Minister reiterated the significance of the two-state solution, describing it as being in the "utmost interest" of all parties involved.

Shoukry emphasized, "We should refrain from promoting or considering any alternative scenarios, but we will address any situation with appropriate and compassionate measures."
