The Israeli military said it is preparing to open a humanitarian corridor, allowing people in northern Gaza to flee south, as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken toured the Middle East calling for a pause in the Israel-Hamas war and the United Nations warned its operations in the enclave were on the verge of shutting down.
The Israel Defense Forces said it planned to allow traffic on Salah al-Din Road—a major north-south thoroughfare in the strip—for three hours Saturday afternoon. “If you care about yourself and your loved ones, head south according to our instructions,” an Israeli military spokesman said, addressing residents in Gaza.
