The IDF says it estimates that some 300,000 Palestinians have evacuated southern Gaza’s Rafah to a designated “humanitarian zone” in the al-Mawasi and Khan Younis areas.

This morning, the IDF expanded the number of zones in eastern Rafah that need to be evacuated amid an ongoing operation against Hamas there.
