Egypt's President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has dismissed the idea of hosting Palestinian refugees from the conflict between Israel and Gaza in the Sinai Peninsula, citing concerns about potential military escalations. It seems that no country at this moment has the courage to firmly stand by Palestine, considering the consequences that could have.

Palestinians feel helpless and call on the world for help. The situation in the Gaza Strip is chaotic. Although world politicians emphasize that Palestine will have help, it seems that everything remains only in words. Sisi, during a joint conference in Cairo with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, stressed the importance of finding a sustainable solution, cautioning against relocating Palestinian residents from Gaza to Sinai.

He emphasized that such a move could transform Sinai into a base for military actions against Israel, possibly leading to further conflicts in the region. Under such conditions, Egypt would have enormous problems, and conflicts could potentially be triggered on Egyptian territory.

Nobody needs that right now. The real solution is still not in sight, and the Palestinians are left to fight alone. However, in conditions where they have no electricity, water, and no special weaponry, they have absolutely no chance.

Chancellor Scholz reacts

Chancellor Scholz, who previously discussed humanitarian aid for Gaza with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, also plans to address this topic with President Sisi. Earlier, there were calls for establishing a humanitarian corridor to facilitate the movement of Palestinians from Gaza to Egypt, but international organizations have warned about potential implications resembling ethnic cleansing.

The conflict between Israel and Palestine has been going on for years. However, it seems that every year it becomes deeper and more complex. The problem between Palestine and Israel is certainly one of the most complex problems.

It is difficult to find the right solution, considering all the influencing factors. There is only optimism that civilians will be safe, and that there will be no victims in the coming period.
