Israel: Evacuation orders do not mean displacement

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesperson Jonathan Conricus insisted on Monday that the military's recent instructions for civilians in parts of Gaza to evacuate do not represent a way to displace those people.

"We have asked civilians to evacuate the battlefield and we have provided a designated humanitarian zone inside the Gaza Strip," Conricus told reporters, with the latter being Al-Mawasi near Khan Younis. He went on to stress the measure is not permanent.

The IDF told the residents of the areas in Gaza's southern regions to evacuate to avoid the potential dangers linked to its campaign against Hamas. Meanwhile, the latter organization accused Israel of using that method to "trap" and "commit more massacres against unarmed civilians and displaced people in the south."
