Israel asks civilians to head to safe areas in south as Israeli operations intensify
At least 32 are the dead from today’s Israeli shelling of residential complexes in southern Gaza, as medical sources stated after Israel’s new warning to civilians to move away to other areas.
Israel’s aggressive military operations appear to be shifting to the southern areas of Gaza, following the suppression of Hamas activity in the northern areas.
Such a development will force thousands of Palestinians who continue to arrive in southern areasafter the Israeli attack on Gaza Cityto move again, together with the inhabitants of the city of Han Yunes. It is recalled that earlier, Israel issued a new warning to Palestinians in the southern city of Khan Younes to move away from the line of fire and approach humanitarian aid, as reported by Reuters.
Han Younes has more than 400,000 inhabitants with the humanitarian crisis worsening daily.
