The terrorist organization Hamas uses the residents of the Gaza Strip as human shields, placing its command and military infrastructure in residential areas, hospitals, mosques, and schools. Hamas turns civilian sites into military targets while using civilians and civilian facilities as a human shield.
Since the beginning of the war, the IDF has been deploying various means to avoid harming civilians in the Gaza Strip. This includes sending messages and announcements to the residents of Gaza calling on them to evacuate from specific areas that are being used by Hamas for terrorist activities and calls for them to evacuate along relevant routes.
In preparation for the next stage of the war, the IDF is publishing the Evacuation Zone Map in the Gaza Strip. This divides the territory of the Gaza Strip into areas according to recognizable areas to enable the residents of Gaza to orient themselves and understand the instructions, and to evacuate from specific places for their safety if required.
An interactive map that was published shows the numbers of the areas in the north and south of the Strip, calling on residents to locate the relevant area to them and to act if they are requested to evacuate from it.
The map was published on a special page on the IDF website in Arabic and in a special video released by the IDF Spokesperson in Arabic on social networks. Additionally, the map was published in announcements distributed by the IDF in the Gaza Strip.
