US President Joe Biden said Monday night Israel must make peace with the Palestinians to survive while warning that its “incredibly conservative government” would cost it international support.

Women in Gaza find themselves on the frontline in a battle for survival. Devoid of shelter, safety, food, water and sanitation, they bear the brunt of a genocidal war.

Around 70 percent of all the people that Israel has killed in Gaza are women and children.

The countdown has begun for Rafah. Israel repeated on Sunday its threats of carrying out a major ground attack against the southern Gaza city before the start of Ramadan: the holy month in Islam, during which Muslims fast, is expected to begin around March 10.

Aerial and satellite footage showed more than 2,000 aid trucks stacked on the Egyptian side of the southern Palestinian city of Rafah, Al Jazeera TV reported on Sunday.

The footage was recorded on 22 February, the channel said.
