Crowds flock through Rafah escaping 'sure death' in Gaza

Palestinians wait with their luggage, hoping to be given the permission to cross into Egypt at the Rafah crossing on July 12, 2014As Israeli forces pressed a ground operation in Gaza on Friday, many Egyptians and foreigners fled to Egypt through the Rafah crossing, escaping what some said was “sure death” in the Palestinian enclave. At least 274 Palestinians have been killed so far in the 11-day conflict between Israel and the Hamas Islamist movement that is the main power in Gaza. The death toll soared on Friday as Israeli troops fanned out across parts of Gaza in search of tunnels they say are being used by Hamas to smuggle in rockets and to infiltrate Israeli lines. Israeli boots on the ground proved the last straw for many Egyptians and foreigners, who had stayed on in Gaza during 10 days of blistering Israeli air strikes.
