The United States says it has seen some improvement by Israel in narrowing targets as it expands its offensive into southern Gaza.

“We’ve seen a much more targeted request for evacuations” than in the earlier campaign in the north, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller tells reporters. “So that is an improvement on what’s happened before.”

As a result of Israeli actions, “the numbers of displaced persons will hopefully be lower in southern Gaza than it was in the north,” he adds. “But when it comes to results, we are going to monitor it very closely.”
