The Palestinian Red Crescent says “thousands” of Gazans are leaving eastern Rafah amid bombings and after Israeli forces ordered the southern Gaza area evacuated.

“The numbers of citizens moving from the eastern areas of Rafah towards the west are large, especially after the intensification of the bombing, there are thousands of citizens leaving their homes,” says Red Crescent spokesman Osama al-Kahlout.
