Sick: Hamas urges civilians in Gaza to ignore Israel’s evacuation warnings

Sick, but typical of a terrorist organization with utter disdain for human life.

Despite flyers that suggested #Gazans would stay away from terror , #Hamas radio recommended to refrain from doing so. #PillarOfDefense

Israel has repeatedly taken steps to minimize the loss of life on both sides.

Today, the IDF dropped leaflets warning civilians to stay away from Hamas operatives.

We are dropping flyers over #Gaza right now, warning civilians to stay away from #Hamas operatives and facilities.

Meanwhile, Hamas uses civilians as human shields. Over and over again.

The IDF shared this transcript from Al-Quds Radio in Gaza.

Question: As the bombings go on, I want to address a specific issue: People have been receiving text messages urging them to evacuate their houses…

Hamas Interior Ministry Spokesperson: This is all part of the psychological warfare held by the Zionist enemy… So by using this way of communication, our public radio, I address all our Palestinian brothers by saying: Please do not listen to the orders noted on these text messages, their only purpose is spreading fear and panic within our people.

Israel values human life; Hamas revels in bloodshed, eager to turn civilians into propaganda before their bodies are even cold.

Meanwhile, Reuters reports that a truce may take effect within hours:

We’ll see how long Hamas holds up its end of the bargain.

Update:

A spokesman from the Israeli prime minister’s office says “there is no Israeli agreement on any version of a ceasefire.”
