The Organization Sinai for Human Rights has reported the construction of a camp in the eastern part of the Sinai Peninsula.

This camp is intended to accommodate Palestinian refugees in the event of a mass exodus from the Gaza Strip and a breach of the border. The camp will be enclosed by a seven-meter-high concrete wall.

Construction is taking place on the site where houses once stood in the Egyptian city of Rafah, which were recently destroyed during military operations against Wilayat Sinai, the Egyptian branch of the Islamic State terrorist group.

The contractors involved in the project are companies with close ties to the Egyptian regime. Currently, the focus is on removing construction debris left behind from the demolished buildings. This phase, along with site leveling, is estimated to take about 10 days.

Muhammad Sabri, a researcher and expert in Egyptian and Sinai security matters, suggests that such extensive construction would likely not have commenced without the approval of Israel and the United States. He believes this indicates Egypt's preparedness to accommodate refugees.
