Those still trapped in Rafah described last night as "One of the worst nights in Rafah", after the intensified ground and aerial assault over the last 48 hours. Palestinians who've fled north to the refugee camps Israel told them to go to are continuing to be targeted by Israel. Today, 6/21, the area around al-Mawasi housing refugees in tents was bombarded and has led to at least 25 dead and 50 wounded. Eye witnesses describe Israeli bombs being dropped near Red Cross facilities. When the first went off people ran to try and help the injured, and a second bomb was dropped in the same area soon after. There has never been anywhere safe in Gaza. For months we have been all watching as people are forced from one area to another under the guise of "safety", only to then be massacred at the new "safe place". I demand that you:  – Hold Israel accountable for a permanent, immediate ceasefire, their violations of the Genocide Convention, and gross human rights violations by any means necessary – Call for the immediate end of Israel’s occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace – Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 – Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law – Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resuming funding of UNRWA – Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict – Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level – Vote no on H.R. 7521 and any similar legislation proposed
