60,000 internal Israeli refugees, as Sderot largely evacuated

The evacuation of Sderot — a city of some 30,000 on the Gaza border that was heavily attacked by Hamas terrorists on October 7 and has been under heavy rocket fire ever since — is almost completed.

Residents of communities less than 4 kilometers from the Gaza border have also been evacuated, and evacuations are ongoing in communities 4-7 kilometers from the Gaza border.

As of now, Channel 12 news reports, there are 60,000 Israeli internal refugees — Israelis, that is, who have been directed by the IDF to leave their homes. Many others, in northern Israel, have also headed toward the center of the country, although the IDF has not formally directed them to do so.
