Shousha stated that the area under construction includes truck waiting areas, secured warehouses, administrative offices, and sleeping quarters for drivers, with provisions for livelihoods and electricity, Khaberni reported.

An Egyptian security source also informed the Arab World Press Agency on Saturday that the constructions in Rafah, on the border with the strip, are large-scale logistic warehouses for storing humanitarian aid, medicines, and fuel destined for Gaza.

In case of displacement from the strip to Sinai, the source denied the establishment of camps to accommodate Palestinians, reaffirming Egypt's stance against allowing their displacement to Sinai.
