IDF announces humanitarian pauses in northern Gaza for evacuations

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says humanitarian pauses in the northern Gaza Strip will continue today to enable Palestinians to evacuate to the south.

The IDF’s Arabic-language Spokesman, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, says on X that the Salah a-Din road will be open for southbound movement until 4 p.m.

He urges residents of the Gaza City neighborhoods of Tel el-Hawa, Sabra, west Zeitoun, Shejaiya and Tuffah to take advantage of the corridor to reach the “humanitarian zone” in southern Gaza’s al-Mawasi area.

“We urge you to evacuate urgently because it is dangerous for you to remain there,” he says.

Additionally, Adraee says the IDF will make “tactical pauses in military activities” in the al-Shabura camp near Rafah in southern Gaza, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., for “humanitarian purposes.”
