Israel Orders Refugees To Flee Khan Younis After Forcing Them To Go There

Israel has issued an order forcing Palestinians to leave Khan Younis, the largest city in southern Gaza, after they had pushed them out of Gaza City. The true israeli intentions are becoming clear as they plan to extend their genocide operation further south in the Gaza Strip.

The evacuation directive comes as Israel faces huge losses in its ground operation against Hamas, whilst intensifying its bombing on innocent civilians, aiming to eradicate the Palestinian population from Gaza.

Over 12,000 people have been murdered by the israeli bombardment, including over 5,000 children, in just over a month. On Saturday, an Israeli missile strike targeted a residential building in Khan Younis, resulting in the tragic death of 26 people, according to a local health official. Israel has yet to comment on the incident, but it has been distributing leaflets in the wider area, ordering civilians to flee the same place they were ordered to flee to from Gaza City.

Mark Regev, the adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has repeatedly lied about Hamas tunnels being under hospitals. These lies have had huge consequences for ICU patients, babies in incubators, and those seeking shelter after being displaced, many of whom have died as a result of the israeli invasion of Al Shifa Hospital. Regev claims that those who relocate from Khan Younis "won't have to move again" which is impossible to believe after the string of lies coming from the zionist regime and this betrayal around evacuating Khan Younis.

The United Nations estimates that at least 1.5 million people in Gaza are internally displaced, with overcrowding and deteriorating conditions posing significant challenges to humanitarian efforts. The situation in southern Gaza, already grappling with a humanitarian crisis since the imposition of a full-scale blockade on October 7, is further exacerbated by the influx of displaced civilians from the North.

Shortages in water, food, and fuel, along with concerns about healthcare facilities and sanitation, as well as the escalating violence, including strikes on hospitals and UN shelters, highlights the urgency of an immediate and unconditional ceasefire.
