On Friday, the Israeli military warned Palestinians from northern Gaza to move to the southern part of the strip, prompting the UN to warn that it would affect 1.1mn people — half the population — and could result in a “calamitous situation”. The instruction suggested Israel was moving to the next phase of its offensive.
Israel’s bombardment of Gaza has already killed 1,417 people, including 447 children, with a further 6,268 wounded, Palestinian officials said on Thursday. They have warned that the territory’s beleaguered health system had “begun to collapse”.
