Hamas on Tuesday issued a warning to Gazan civilians not to obey the IDF’s instructions to evacuate from combat zones.

In the warning, Hamas warned against the “distribution of the IDF’s leaflets, which require the residents of the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City to move south. IDF vehicles are located along the Salah al-Din Road axis; it is a death trap.

The IDF is calling on residents of two Gaza City neighborhoods to evacuate to the al-Mawasi “humanitarian zone” on the coast of southern Gaza.
