Middle East conflict live updates: Humanitarian crisis worsens as Gazans flee Rafah before Israeli advance


Nearly 360,000 people have fled Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip following Israeli evacuation orders, according to the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees. Satellite imagery showed swelling numbers of people in the central Gaza, as fighting and strikes intensified in parts of northern Gaza. Hospitals are facing possible shutdowns as concerns about hunger grow, with the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt closed to aid for a week, the Gaza Health Ministry and the U.N. humanitarian affairs office warned.
