The IDF is calling on those living near Shifa Hospital and residents of the nearby Gaza City neighborhood of Rimal to evacuate to the al-Mawasi “humanitarian zone” on the coast of southern Gaza, as the military launches a new raid in the area.

Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, the IDF’s Arabic-language spokesman, publishes a map of the zones that need to be evacuated alongside the announcement.

He says civilians should evacuate southward via the Strip’s coastal road.

At the beginning of Israel’s ground offensive against Hamas, the IDF called on all Palestinian civilians in northern Gaza to evacuate southward, although some 300,000 have remained, in increasingly dire conditions.
