The Israel Defense Forces’s Arabic-language Spokesman, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, says Israel will again open a corridor for Gazan civilians in the north of the Strip to escape south.

Adraee writes on X that Israel will open Salah-al-Din Street for southward traffic between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

“For your safety, take advantage of the time to move south beyond Wadi Gaza,” he says, reiterating the Israeli military’s long-standing insistence that civilians move south, where the IDF’s operations are more limited.

The humanitarian corridor was opened yesterday for several hours, despite coming under attack by Hamas on Saturday.

Some 800,000 people are thought to have fled south so far, though many have insisted on staying in the enclave’s north, noting humanitarian woes and airstrikes taking place in the south as well.
