What happens if Gaza ceasefire talks fail

Nearly 40 Palestinians in Rafah will die each day due to traumatic injuries if Israel continues and escalates its incursion, according to a new analysis by Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Humanitarian Health and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. That’s a total of 3,509 people killed by just violent traumatic deaths — not including sickness or hunger — by August 17. 

The report underscores the dire conditions in an area that was supposed to be the last refuge for Palestinians fleeing the carnage in Gaza and the urgent need for Israel and Hamas to agree to the ceasefire proposal currently in negotiations. US President Joe Biden recently announced Israel has a ceasefire plan it has endorsed, but Israeli leaders have disputed this claim, creating confusion about whether passing the deal is actually feasible.
