(Central News Agency Gaza/Jerusalem Comprehensive Foreign News Report on the 17th) Israel issued a new warning to the Palestinians in the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis, asking them to move westward away from the battle lines and closer to humanitarian relief agencies. This is the Israeli military’s control of Northern California. The latest sign that Sahara plans to advance into the south to attack Hamas.
Reuters reported that Mark Regev, an aide to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, told MSNBC today: “We are asking people to move again. I know this is not a good idea for many people. Easy, but we don’t want to see civilians involved in the war.”
Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have just fled to the southern Gaza Strip to escape Israeli attacks on Gaza City, but Israel’s renewed evacuation warning could force them to fight with Khan Younis. Residents of Younis have been relocated again, exacerbating a severe humanitarian crisis. Khan Yunis originally had a population of more than 400,000.
After the Palestinian armed group Hamas launched a cross-border raid on Israel on October 7, killing about 1,200 people and taking 240 hostages, Israel vowed to annihilate Hamas, which controls the Gaza corridor.
Since then, Israel has bombed Gaza City aggressively, razing most areas to the ground, and ordered to reduce the population of the entire northern half of the Gaza Corridor, leaving about two-thirds of the 2.3 million Palestinians in the Gaza Corridor homeless. Returnable. Many who have fled fear they will be permanently displaced.
Health authorities in Gaza raised the death toll today, announcing that more than 12,000 people had been killed in the Israeli land and air offensive, 5,000 of them children. The United Nations considers the data credible, but it does not frequently update casualty figures because of the difficulty in gathering information.
Israel airdropped leaflets in the eastern area of Khan Younis last night, asking local people to evacuate to shelters, indicating that there will be military operations in the area.
Regev said the Israel Defense Forces would have to advance into Khan Younis to drive Hamas fighters out of tunnels and bunkers, but there was no such “huge infrastructure” in the less densely built areas to the west.
He added: “I’m pretty sure (if they move west) they won’t have to move again. We ask them to move to a place where they can expect to have tents and a field hospital.”
He said that because the western region is closer to the Rafah Border Crossing on the border with Egypt, humanitarian relief supplies can be delivered “as soon as possible”. (Translator: Zhang Xiaowen/Verification: Lu Yingzi) 1121118
