GAZA CITY.— A day after Israeli troops entered the center of Gaza City, 50,000 Palestinians evacuated the northern Strip heading south through a humanitarian corridor.

50 thousand Palestinians evacuated this Wednesday (yesterday) the north of the Gaza Strip heading south through a humanitarian corridor enabled by its Army," reported the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), an agency of the Ministry of Israeli defense that controls civil affairs in the occupied Palestinian territories, on the X social network.

The number of internally displaced people in Gaza exceeds 1.5 million (more than two-thirds of a population of 2.3 million).

Of them, 725 thousand take refuge in UN facilities, 122 thousand in hospitals, churches and other public buildings, 131 thousand in schools not linked to the United Nations, and the rest with families.

It was terrifying. We raised our hands and kept walking. There were so many of us, we carried white flags,” described Ola al Ghul, a woman who fled the fighting last Tuesday.

Although Israel ordered the evacuation of civilians in Gaza to the south, its troops attack by air and land even in the southern part of the enclave.

In that area, displaced people live in overcrowded conditions amid a shortage of drinking water, food, medicine, electricity and fuel.

The exodus of civilians to the south of the small Palestinian territory accelerated with the intensification of bombings and ground fighting, according to United Nations observers.

Israel vowed to “annihilate Hamas” in retaliation for the attack on its territory on October 7, in which Islamist fighters killed 1,400 people, mostly civilians, and kidnapped about 240.

The Israeli army has since bombed the Strip, ignoring requests for a ceasefire from the international community.

In images released yesterday by the Israeli army, tanks can be seen advancing through the ruins of Gaza.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his refusal to agree to a ceasefire without the release of the hostages.

"I would like to put an end to all kinds of false rumors that come to us from all sides and reiterate something clearly: there will be no ceasefire without the release of our hostages," he insisted yesterday.
