Once more, news circulating on social media that Egyptian companies take a fee, in USD, to help Palestinians cross from the Rafah border to Egypt has elicited a rebuff. After Egyptian officials denied such claims in January, Hamas made a statement denying that an Egyptian company is collecting fees at Rafah Crossing. An Egyptian company called, Hala Consulting and Tourism, is allegedly operating a system known as, “coordination,” that helps Palestinians cross the Rafah border to Egypt, according to Sky News. Approximately 400 Palestinians, including individuals holding dual citizenship documents, left Gaza on 1 March to Egypt. It is reported that the collective amount paid totals USD 1.3 million (EGP 40.1 million) The head of the political bureau of Hamas’ media advisor, Taher Al-Nono, denied claims that the Egyptian company takes thousands of dollars to help Palestinians cross.These are rumors aimed at defaming Egypt’s role, which is the only constant and strongest role in supporting the Palestinian people, these allegations are Israeli Zionist rumors spread by their agents and those who oppose the Egyptian role, Al-Nono said on ‘In the Evening with Kaswaa,’ a TV show on the CBC Channel.

Sometimes, a mere few dozen hours can hold the power to mold entire lifetimes. By piecing together these fragments, we get a deeper understanding of how they continue to influence the course of our lives. In her captivating novel, Celestial Bodies (2010), Jokha Alharthi explores how seemingly ordinary choices, like selecting an unconventional name for a child, opting for a hospital birth instead of a home birth, or even a young, unmarried woman engaging in conversations with married women, can subtly challenge and dismantle long-held societal norms and practices. Alharthi crafts a meditative exploration of lifes rhythm for three generations within a wealthy Omani family. Through an exploration of the intimate moments within their homes and whispered prayers that hold their deepest desires, Alharthi reveals the subtle beauty and complexity of their existence, reminding us that even amidst lifes inevitable tragedies, the journey of life often unfolds not in grand gestures, but in the quiet hum of everyday moments.

Israeli and Hamas delegations are expected to reconvene in Cairo on Sunday 3 March to resume talks aimed at achieving a lasting ceasefire in Gaza, according to two Egyptian security sources with knowledge of the negotiations.  However, The Times of Israel has reported that Israel will not send a delegation until it receives a full list of Israeli hostages who are still alive as a key condition for Israels agreement to a ceasefire. The talks, which have been mediated by Qatar and Egypt, seek to find a solution that is acceptable to both Israel and Hamas.  To address the worsening humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, Egypt, UAE, Jordan, Qatar, and France, conducted a series of airdrops on Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 February, delivering crucial aid supplies.  The United States also initiated the first in a planned sequence of humanitarian food airdrops into Gaza on Saturday 2 March.  US President Joe Biden has expressed hope that a ceasefire will be in place by the start of Ramadan, which falls on 10 March.  While gaps remain in bridging the differences between the parties, assurances have been offered to Hamas regarding This content is for members only.

The war on Palestine has long been a source of contention and complexity, and its reverberations are felt far beyond the borders of the Middle East. In Europe, the conflict has sparked divisions and triggered a range of responses, particularly within the far-right movements.  Europes Divided Leadership: Historical Guilt and Shifting Consensus The European Unions response to the war on Gaza has been characterized by a divided leadership, as some member countries align themselves with Palestine while others with Israel. Due to Europes historical connections with the Holocaust and antisemitism, there are reverberating sensitivities surrounding Israel, leading to initial internal divisions and backlash within the EU against visits to Israel by its leaders. These divisions were further highlighted during the UN General Assembly votes, which showcased differing stances among EU member states. This revealed a divide in consensus on the war on Palestine, with governments aligning themselves more closely with Israels viewpoint. However, it is important to note that public opinion, particularly among younger generations and specifically in Scotland, leans towards the Palestinian cause, creating a divergence between the populace and their governments.

Amidst mounting public concern and media scrutiny, the Public Prosecution has taken a new step in the investigation into the death of Al-Arish University student Naira Al-Zoghbi. Ordering an autopsy to determine the cause of her demise, authorities aim to shed light on the circumstances surrounding the tragic incident. Prompted by initial reports of Naira Al-Zoghbis passing, the Public Prosecution launched a judicial inquiry, interrogating key individuals including the victims parents, university peers, and housing officials.

United States President Joe Biden announced on 1 March plans to carry out the first military airdrop of food and supplies into Gaza, a day after more than 100 Palestinians were killed while queuing for aid. “Aid flowing to Gaza is nowhere nearly enough,” the US president said, noting that “hundreds of trucks” should be entering the enclave. He also stated that the US is “going to insist that Israel facilitate more trucks and more routes to get more and more people the help they need, no excuses.” According to US officials, the US military is working to carry the airdrops in the coming days, with no further specifics. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said that the airdrops would become a “sustained effort” adding that the airdrop will likely be “military MREs, or meals ready-to-eat. This isn’t going to be one and done, Kirby added. On Thursday, 29 February, Gaza health authorities said that Israeli forces killed more than 100 people queueing for a relief convoy. Since the war on Gaza started, more than 30,000 Palestinians have been reported killed in Gaza, and 70,457 are injured. This content is for members only.

After blackmail and extortion, on 29 February, the 19-year-old university student, Naira Salah, lost her life. Following a dispute between Salah and Shorouk, her university colleague, the latter took compromising pictures of Salah in the dormitory bathroom and threatened to circulate the photos on the internet. She then sent the pictures to a male colleague, Taha Al-Tamili, to blackmail Salah, and they planned to threaten and publicly shame her at the university unless she apologized to them. Using the university group chat on WhatsApp, they sent a poll, asking people to vote on when to publish the photos taken of Salah, demanding that Salah apologize in the group chat. Salah conformed and apologized on the group chat, making members of the group think that the argument was over. Nonetheless, Salah was soon pronounced dead, catching people by surprise. Salah was a college girl studying veterinary medicine at Al-Arish University. She was loved by her family and friends, and known for having a strong religious faith. Her mother is a nurse, and her father is a lawyer’s assistant. On the day of her demise, Salah called her mother telling her that This content is for members only.

Henedy, known for being one of the best Egyptian Comedians of the 21st century, continues to spark controversy across different social media platforms every time his name is mentioned next to the words, ‘Saudi Arabia.’ Henedy’s announcement was through a tweet on X (formerly known as Twitter). He said, “The greatest honor is that I have had the privilege of obtaining the citizenship and passport of the land of the Two Holy Mosques.” Most of his Saudi Arabian fans congratulated him and welcomed him warmly to Saudi Arabia. However, one user replied, “Now I feel protective over my Saudi identity.” On the other hand, Egyptian fans resorted to mockery and started renaming his films, making them more relevant This content is for members only.

Wheat, corn, and sugar, three of the most essential ingredients for nutrition, are no longer traded in Egypt. The Egyptian Mercantile Exchange (EMX), an institution for regulating trading operations and transactions in commodity markets, was established in January 2020 through a collaboration between the Egyptian Exchange, the Internal Trade Development Authority, and the General Authority for Supply Commodities. Trade of sugar, wheat, and corn, three key commodities, has been stopped for approximately two months, amidst market volatility and volatile pricing practices. Over the past two months, Egyptian markets have witnessed erratic pricing, due to the shortage of hard currency for importers, following an increase in the value of the Egyptian pound in the parallel market. This eventually prompted some sectors to price and sell their products in dollars, such as iron, fertilizers, and animal feed. The deputy head of the Chamber of Grain Production at the Federation of Egyptian Industries, Abdul-Ghaffar El-Salamouni, stated, “The decision to suspend trading on wheat in the EMX aims to control the market and protect consumers, as some mills are overpricing flour products.” According to Egypts Minister of Supply and Internal Trade, Ali El-Sayed Ali This content is for members only.

To address the worsening humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, Egypt, supported by UAE, Jordan, Qatar, and France, conducted on Tuesday 27 February a series of airdrops to deliver crucial aid supplies.  The Egyptian Air Force dropped 50 tons of aid, including food and medicine, across northern and central Gaza. This marked the first time such a delivery has taken place since the Israeli war on Gaza.  These urgent aid deliveries come in response to warnings from human rights groups and international agencies about the dire situation faced by hundreds of thousands of distressed Palestinians, including children and infants, who are on the brink of famine due to restrictions on aid deliveries.  In addition to the airdrops, Egypt has taken further action to provide relief to the affected population. Egypt established a second refugee camp in Khan Yunis, equipped with 400 tents capable of accommodating up to 4,000 people. The camp is equipped with a power supply and sanitary facilities.
