Israel’s response to the Oct. 7 massacre of some 1,400 innocent civilians by the terrorists of Hamas, a brutal attack that reports now have confirmed was done by drugged-up radicals with written instructions to commit atrocities, will include its military moves against Hamas assets in Gaza.
And to that end, it has warned civilians there to evacuate for their own safety.
But now a report confirms that Hamas itself is preventing that evacuation, meaning it is keeping civilians near its military bases that will be targeted in a coming ground advance by Israel Defense Forces.
A report from the Jewish News Syndicate explains from the IDF came audio evidence that Hamas “is forcibly preventing Palestinians from heeding Israeli orders to evacuate to the south of the Gaza Strip.
The report explained the recording from the IDF “features an officer in IDF Military Intelligence Directorate’s Unit 504 and a Gazan civilian speaking about the latter’s attempt to temporarily relocate from the northern part of the Strip.”
Israel has stated its intention of destroying the Hamas terrorist organization, which has its assets located throughout Gaza, including in residential neighborhoods and adjacent to hospitals.
The report explains, “In the call, the IDF officer tells Muhammad that to ‘ensure your personal safety, I’m asking you to urgently go towards Khan Younis’ in the south.”
The Gazan says, “All roads are blocked.”
“When asked if Hamas is blocking the roads, he answers in the affirmative, saying that Hamas was preventing passage south through Salah al-Din Road, the main north-south highway running through the Gaza Strip,” the report says.
And, the Gazan adds, “They are shooting at people.”
