IDF Warns Gaza Civilians to Evacuate South

The IDF has announced it is giving a 24 hour notice to Gazan civilians in the Northern portion of strip to evacuate to the southern half. They say that they will be carrying out significant operations in Gaza city itself, stating that “Hamas terrorists” are operating within a tunnel network underneath the city, and that civilians should not allow themselves to be used as a “human shield”.

Reportedly, Hamas has told civilians not to evacuate.

Gaza is one of the most densely populated regions in the world, and a rushed evacuation such as this poses both extreme difficulty and an extreme risk to the population.
