The Israel Defense Forces announces a new humanitarian corridor in the southern Gaza Strip, as it advances on Khan Younis.
The IDF’s Arabic-language Spokesman, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, says on X that Gaza’s main north-south highway, Salah ad-Din, in the areas northeast of Khan Younis is a “battle zone.”
“The fighting and military advance of the IDF in the Khan Younis area does not allow the movement of civilians through the Salah ad-Din axis in the areas north and east of the city,” he says.
He says the IDF will facilitate the movement of civilians via a bypass route to the west of Khan Younis.
“Passage from the Rafah and Khan Younis areas toward Deir al-Balah and the camps of central Gaza will be available through the following routes: al-Rashid coastal road and al-Shuhada Street in Deir al-Balah,” he says.
