Israeli military urges people to evacuate parts of eastern Rafah

# The Israel Defence Force has urged Palestinians in eastern parts of Rafah to move to nearby humanitarian areas, in what appears to be preparation for a ground offensive. About 100-thousand people are affected. Israeli strikes killed at least 29 people across Gaza last night. Israeli Defence minister, Yoav Gallant, says Hamas’s refusal of mediated talks on the release of hostages means military action in Rafah was required. The United Nations has rapidly warned that a ground invasion would mean more suffering and death for displaced Palestinians.
