Isreal Give 1 Million People In Gaza 24 Hours To Leave As They Prepare For An Offensive Invasion.

Israel’s military delivered Immediate evacuation of northern Gaza, a region that is home to 1.1 million people — about half of the territory’s population — within 24 hours on Friday ahead of a feared ground offensive aiming to eradicate the Hamas militant group after gunmen stormed over the border and brutally murdered men, women and children,  A U.N. officials said. The order sent panic through civilians and aid workers already struggling under Israeli airstrikes and a blockade.

This could signal an impending ground offensive, though the Israeli military has not yet confirmed such an appeal. On Thursday it said that while it was preparing, a decision had not yet been made.


The order, delivered to the U.N., comes as Israel presses an offensive against Hamas militants. U.N. spokesman Stéphane Dujarric called the order “impossible” without “devastating humanitarian consequences.”

A ground offensive has not been announced. IDF Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said in a video livestream Friday that civilians were being asked to leave for their own safety.

Also Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken traveled to Israel, where he pledged that the U.S. “will always be there by your side,” as airstrikes in Gaza continued and deaths increased.

The number of dead in Israel from Hamas terror attacks on the country is more than 1,300 people. Twenty-seven Americans have been killed, officials in the U.S. said.

In Gaza, 1,537 people have been killed, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

Crucial supplies in Gaza are running out. Israel has said its “complete siege” will not be lifted until Hamas releases the 100 to 150 people estimated to have been taken hostage.

The World Health Organization on Thursday warned that the health system in Gaza is at a breaking point.

“Time is running out to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe if fuel and life-saving health and humanitarian supplies cannot be urgently delivered,” the organization said. It said it has documented the deaths of 11 health workers on duty in attacks on Gaza.

Social media posts have called for a “Day of Rage” Friday. Former Hamas leader Khaled Mashal recently called for it to be a global day of “anger” in support of the attack on Israel.

Police departments around the U.S. said they were prepared but were not aware of any specific credible threats.
