The IDF has dropped leaflets this morning calling on “everyone in Gaza City” to evacuate and head south toward shelters in central Gaza’s Deir al-Balah.

The flyer provides instructions on safe routes to evacuate Gaza City, via the Salah a-Din road or the coastal road.

“Gaza City will be a dangerous combat zone,” the leaflets warn.

The IDF in recent days had issued evacuation warnings for several areas in Gaza City as troops carry out operations in its western and southern neighborhoods, as well as in the eastern Shejaiya neighborhood.

The latest warning covers all of Gaza City.

Some 200,000 Palestinians remain in northern Gaza, according to recent IDF estimates.
