GAZA STRIP — Thousands of Palestinians in southern Gaza and the central Gaza Strip have headed to the northern part to inspect their homes on Friday morning, hours after a four-day humanitarian truce went into effect, while the Israeli Occupation Forces warned residents of the southern Gaza Strip areas and those displaced there from heading to the northern regions and Gaza City. اضافة اعلان

The IOF dropped leaflets over the southern areas of the Gaza Strip, including the city of Rafah, amid popular Palestinian calls to return to the north at one 1pm on Friday.

The IOF said in the leaflet: “To the residents of the Gaza Strip, the war is not over yet. The humanitarian pause is temporary, and the northern Gaza Strip area is a dangerous war zone and it is forbidden to go there.” It added: “You must remain in the humanitarian zone located in the southern Strip and not go to North".

It also stated that movement is only available “from north to south via Salah Al-Din Road,” and concluded by saying: “Returning to the north is forbidden and dangerous. Your fate and the fate of your families are in your hands.”

At least two people were gunned down in Central Gaza by the Israeli army as they tried to head north, according to local journalists.
