Egypt has deployed tanks and armored personnel carriers to its border with Gaza in order to bolster security. This comes ahead of the expansion of Israeli military operations around Gaza's southern city of Rafah, which has caused concern that Palestinians may attempt to flee into Egypt. Egypt has taken several measures to enhance security on its border, including the construction of a concrete border wall and enhanced surveillance at border posts. The relationship between Egypt and Israel has come under strain due to Israel's military operation in Gaza, and Egypt has raised concerns about the possibility of desperate Gazans entering Sinai. Egypt has also blamed Israel for limiting aid deliveries into Gaza.
