The Israel Defense Forces accuses the Hamas terror group of attacking troops working to open up a humanitarian corridor for Palestinians to evacuate from northern Gaza to its south.

Earlier today, the IDF’s Arabic-language spokesman Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee announced that between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. the Salah a-Din road would be open for Palestinians to evacuate to southern Gaza.

The IDF says Hamas took advantage of the situation, and launched mortars and anti-tank guided missiles at troops working to open the road.

It says Hamas did so “in order to prevent [the road’s] opening for the movement of residents of the Gaza Strip.”

No soldiers were hurt in the attack, the IDF says.

The IDF has already accused Hamas of attempting to prevent Palestinians from evacuating northern Gaza, where the military has focused most of its airstrikes and ongoing ground offensive.
