As Operation “Al-Aqsa Flood” - launched by the Palestinian resistance - entered its seventh day, the United Nations said that the Israeli army informed it of the necessity of moving the entire population of northern Gaza (about 1.1 million) to the southern Strip within 24 hours.
The United Nations Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said that it has moved its central operations center and international staff to southern Gaza to continue its humanitarian operations and support its staff and Palestinian refugees.
The agency added on the X platform, “We urge the Israeli authorities to protect all civilians in UNRWA shelters, including schools.”
United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric said - in a statement - that the number of people requested by the Israeli army to move to the south of the Strip amounts to 1.1 million people.
Dujarric added, "The organization strongly appeals to cancel any deportation order for residents of the northern Gaza Strip to avoid a catastrophic situation," considering that it is impossible to implement such an order without devastating humanitarian consequences.
For its part, the government media office in Gaza said that warning residents of the Strip to move is false propaganda, and “we urge our citizens not to be led by it.”
