WATCH: Israel Helps Thousands Of Gazans Evacuate After Hamas Tried To Trap Them
People carrying some of their belongings reach the central Gaza Strip via the Salah al-Din road on their way to the southern part of the Palestinian enclave on November 5, 2023. Leaflets dropped by the Israeli army on November 5, urged Gaza City residents to evacuate south between 10 am (0800 GMT) and 2 pm (1200 GMT), a day after a US official said at least 350,000 civilians remained in and around the city that is now an urban war zone.

Israel released video footage on Monday showing that its forces had managed to open an evacuation corridor in northern Gaza to allow for residents to safely move to the southern portion of the Gaza Strip as Israel conducts military operations in the north to root out Hamas.

The footage comes after Hamas, an Islamic terrorist organization that is backed by Iran, launched an unprecedented terrorist attack on October 7, murdering 1,400 Israelis, wounding 5,300+, and kidnapping more than 240.

Israel strongly urged residents to take advantage of the opportunity to save themselves and their families as the country strikes Hamas targets throughout the area.

Israel has urged the residents of northern Gaza to evacuate to the south for more than three weeks, and Hamas has routinely interfered to prevent people from leaving.

Israel has dropped more than 1.5 million pamphlets, made nearly 20,000 phone calls, sent nearly 4.5 million text messages, and made nearly 6 million pre-recorded calls urging residents to northern Gaza to evacuate.

Gazans have told Israeli intelligence operatives that Hamas has confiscated car keys and that Hamas is shooting at those who are trying to evacuate.


The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) released satellite imagery three weeks ago that showed Hamas had set up roadblocks to stop cars from leaving northern Gaza.

Hamas commits war crimes by using civilians as human shields in the hopes of either deterring Israel from striking targets or, in the case that Israel does strike the target and civilians are killed, Hamas hopes to generate outrage in the media by claiming that Israel intentionally targets civilians — which is not true.
