Some 180,000 civilians fled to the south of the Strip between Wednesday and Friday, according to Israeli authorities.

The Israeli authorities have opened this Saturday a new evacuation period for civilians who want to flee the northern area of ​​the Gaza Strip, this time seven hours (it was four), after in recent days several tens of thousands of people have moved to other areas in the south of the enclave.

A military spokesman explained that the corridor will remain open between 9:00 and 16:00 (local time)"for humanitarian purposes," and has released a telephone number that civilians can call if they believe that the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) is blocking their path.

A "tactical suspension" of operations will also be applied in the Yabalia refugee camp, scene of some of the deadliest bombings in recent weeks. In this case, the attacks will stop from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. so that the population can also flee.

Israel recommends the departure of the population from an area that it describes as "widespread fighting", although in recent days several UN officials have made it clear that there is no safe place in Gaza today. More than 11,000 people have died since the start of the Israeli offensive, according to data from the Gaza Ministry of Health.

The UN is also aware of around 1.6 million displaced people in the Strip, where the movement of civilians has skyrocketed in recent days through the corridors opened by Israel. According to the Coordinator of the Activities of the Government of Israel in the Territories (COGAT), between Wednesday and Friday about 180,000 civilians crossed to the southern part.
