Gaza residents begin moving south on Friday, Oct. 13, following Israel’s call to evacuate



Israel has directed the massive evacuation of up to 1.1 million Palestinians from the northern Gaza Strip within the next 24 hours ahead of a possible ground invasion targeting Hamas terrorists.

The warning was first shared by the United Nations early Friday before the Israeli military sent out a public evacuation order that the international organization called “impossible.”

“Today team leaders of the UN Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and the Department of Safety and Security in Gaza were informed by their liaison officers in the Israeli military that the entire population of Gaza north of Wadi Gaza should relocate to southern Gaza within the next 24 hours,” UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric told Axios.

The UN estimated roughly 1.1 million civilians — nearly half of Gaza’s entire population — would need to evacuate as a result of the directive.

Around the same time, Israel’s military released a statement ordering the hundreds of thousands of civilians living in Gaza City to head farther south into the Gaza Strip, saying Hamas terrorists were hiding in tunnels under the city.
