Israeli army plans to 'evacuate' civilians

The Israeli army presented a plan to “evacuate” civilians from “war zones” in the Gaza Strip, Benjamin Netanyahu's services announced on Monday, and is still determined to launch a military offensive against the populous city of Rafah. The army “presented to the War Cabinet a plan for the evacuation of people from the war zones in the Gaza Strip and a plan for future operations,” the Prime Minister's Office said in a brief statement, without giving details.

The announcement comes ahead of an expected Israeli offensive on Rafah, a city in the south of the Palestinian territory where, according to the UN, nearly 1.5 million Palestinians, most of them displaced, live in the most precarious situation. Despite several international warnings, Benjamin Netanyahu wants to launch a ground operation against the city, backed by Egypt's closed border and what he posits as the “last bastion” of the Islamist movement Hamas.
