Gaza Strip: Israel's army announces new window for Gaza evacuation

The Israeli army announced on Sunday another window of opportunity for the evacuation of civilians in the north of the Gaza Strip towards the south. The Israeli army spokesman published the information in Arabic on The army will not attack this corridor during this period.

Anyone who cares about the safety of their family should head south, the message said. Hamas, which rules in the Gaza Strip, looks after its own members and their families. There were also reports that Hamas was preventing civilians from fleeing. Israel has repeatedly accused the Islamist organization of using its own population as human shields.

Israel's calls to the people of Gaza are also conveyed through other channels, including through leaflets. According to the military, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have already moved to the south of the narrow coastal strip following previous evacuation calls. Around 2.3 million Palestinians live in the Gaza Strip.

Observers assume that the Israeli military has asked the more than one million Palestinians in the northern coastal strip to evacuate because a ground offensive is imminent. The United Nations had criticized the instruction and warned of a humanitarian catastrophe.

Since the unprecedented massacre of Israeli civilians by terrorists on behalf of Hamas in border towns and at a music festival a week ago on Saturday, the Israeli military has been carrying out massive air strikes on targets in the densely populated coastal strip.
