“All Eyes on Rafah”: The Troubling Reasons Behind This Trending Slogan On Social Media (2024)

“All Eyes on Rafah” campaign: World’s attention on the war in Gaza. The “All Eyes on Rafah” campaign is spreading rapidly on social media after the Israel army’s attack in Gaza. People are sharing photos and messages on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter condemning the attack on the refugee camp in Rafah. Celebrities from around the world, including Bollywood, Hollywood, and sports stars, have also extended their support to the campaign.

The campaign was started by activists and human rights organizations who wanted to spread awareness about the war in countries like Europe, Australia and India. Common people are also joining the campaign, sharing posts on social media, and showing solidarity with the people of Gaza. The campaign aims to get the international community to put pressure on Israel and enforce a ceasefire in Gaza.

“All Eyes on Rafah” The purpose of this slogan is to appeal to people around the world not to divert their attention from the events happening in Palestine. Around 14 lakh Gaza residents who fled in fear of fierce fighting are currently taking refuge in Rafah and despite such a large population, Israel is attacking there. This slogan has been used in Palestine support demonstrations for the last several days. But after the death of 40 Palestinians and dozens injured in Israel’s latest air strikes in Rafah, the slogan ‘All eyes on Rafah’ is spreading rapidly on social media.
