‘All eyes on Rafah’ meaning explained as backlash grows over Israel airstrike

The phrase ‘All Eyes on Rafah’ has gained momentum on social media throughout the last few months, urging people to pay attention to Israel‘s ongoing conflict in Gaza.

It’s once again picking up traction online, following a deadly Israeli airstrike, which killed dozens of civilians who were in a designated safe zone.

Horrifying scenes on Sunday showed a blazing hellscape following airstrikes near tents for displaced Palestinians with most of the victims being women, children and the elderly, according to local health officials.

The image, which is thought to be Artificial Intelligence (AI), depicts hundreds of rows of tents, alongside the capitalised phrase.

Celebrities, influencers, and athletes have also reposted the picture in an effort to draw attention to the conflict, including the likes of Bella Hadid, Nicola Coughlan, Dua Lipa, and Lewis Hamilton.

The phrase seemingly originated from a comment by Rick Peeperkorn, who is the director of the World Health Organisation’s Office of the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

In February, before Israel’s ground invasion of Gaza, he said ‘All eyes are on Rafah’.

Since then, the saying has become a call to action and a push to encourage people not to turn their heads and instead to draw the world’s attention to what is happening.
