Rafah, Gaza, with a population of 250,000, is now crammed with 1.5 million displaced Palestinian civilians. What events led to the current crisis in Rafah? Would a ground offensive there cause a major humanitarian disaster? How would Egypt, which borders the Gazan city, react to an Israeli assault there? Why does Israel want to invade it in the first place? And what options currently lie in front of Israel? We’re covering all this on Today Unpacked.
