Rwanda’s government has denied claims by several different media outlets that they were holding secret talks with Israel in order to facilitate potentially receiving “tens of thousands” of migrants from Gaza. The claim first originated from Israeli news company Zman Yisrael, and has since been reported by several other outlets, including Middle East Eye, Quds News Network, and several more.

The claim from Zman Yisrael also stated that Israel was in talks with Chad over the same issue, and had similarly approached the DRC, who it says hesitated on the offer.
This is NOT true. Rwanda is not involved any such talks. https://t.co/2mbe7PwHf5

The alleged deal would facilitate the emigration of Palestinians in Gaza to both Rwanda and give a “generous financial grant” to any Palestinian who chooses to take part, in addition to giving aid to the receiving country.
