Hamas chief isolated – Israeli army “in the center of Gaza City”

Date:

Israeli soldiers have entered central Gaza, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said. “We are in the heart of Gaza city,” Gallant said on Tuesday, a month after the start of the war between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic terror organization Hamas.in the Gaza Strip.

The city is ‘the largest terrorist base ever built in the world’. The head of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Jahja Sinwar, is isolated in his bunker, he explains. Only on Saturday did an army spokesman say that the city of Gaza was completely surrounded. The Gaza Strip was divided into two halves.

The situation in Gaza City deteriorated on Tuesday. The Israeli army had given the remaining civilians four hours to escape. Safe passage was possible between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM (local time, 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM CET). “For your own safety, take this opportunity to move south,” the army advised.

People flee with white flags
A number of residents fled to the south of the coastal area with white flags in their hands. The Israeli Coordination Center for Activities in the Palestinian Territories (COGAT) released a video claiming thousands of people are walking through the ‘evacuation corridor’. Several people can be seen waving white flags (photo below).

Tanks were moved into position during the night
According to residents of Gaza City, in the north of the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army mainly deployed its tanks at night. According to the armed forces, the Gaza Strip is divided into two halves and Gaza City is completely surrounded – there is a threat of intense urban warfare.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had previously told American broadcaster ABC in an interview that Israel would take responsibility for security in the Gaza Strip after the end of the war. “We’ve seen what happens when we don’t have them,” he explained. “Because if we don’t control security, Hamas’ terror will erupt on a scale we cannot imagine.”

About a third of the coastal area’s 2.3 million residents lived in Gaza City. According to the UN, 70 percent of the population in the Gaza Strip has been displaced since the start of the war.
