The Israeli military is calling on Palestinians in additional neighborhoods of northern Gaza to evacuate the area, as it presses on with its operation against Hamas in Jabaliya.

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

Last weekend, the IDF issued an evacuation warning for Jabaliya, before it pushed into the area. It has since twice expanded the evacuation zone, and the latest announcement includes the al-Atatra and al-Karama areas on the coast.

Palestinian civilians are told to move to shelters west of Gaza City.

The IDF operation against Hamas in Jabaliya was launched after it identified terror operatives regrouping there.
