'Growing Stream' of Gazans Flee Homes as IDF Prepares to Strike
Arutz Sheva ^ | 13/7/14 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 07/13/2014 2:47:22 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

The UN's special refugee agency for Palestinians, UNRWA, reported Sunday that about 4,000 residents of northern Gaza have fled their homes after the IDF told them to do so, starting last night.

In addition, about 850 Palestinians with foreign nationalities are leaving Gaza through the Erez checkpoint. Three hundred of these had already done so by the early afternoon.

Israeli aircraft dropped leaflets on border areas in northern Gaza, calling on the citizens to evacuate their homes before noon Sunday as it prepared to bomb the area.

The IDF warned that those who do not obey their instructions will be risking their lives and the lives of their family.

UNRWA has opened eight schools to accommodate the evacuees from the northern Gaza Strip, said Robert Turner, director of UNRWA operations, during a press conference held Sunday in one of these schools. He said about 4,000 people had already taken shelter in the schools and that the stream of evacuees was increasing.

Turner said that UNRWA will open more schools for evacuees if necessary, but pointed out that UNRWA schools can accommodate no more than 35 thousand people.

About 50,000 residents of northern Gaza similarly evacuated their homes and sought refuge in UNRWA schools during the IDF's Cast Lead operation in 2008-9.

Hamas tried to trick residents of northern Gaza into staying in harm's way. It called on the residents not to leave their homes and called Israel's warnings “psychological warfare intended to sow fear in people's hearts.”

Sh*t like this tends to happen when the roof of your apartment building is used to launch rockets.

Awesome video. I am always amazed by how nice some of this Gaza houses are, a far cry from where the average Palestinians live. Even more amazed by the pinpoint accuracy of the IAF, hitting one house with very little damage to the house next to it. And I have always wondered about those “knock on the roof” strikes, how easy it was to distinguish them from nearby explosions... now I don’t have any doubts. Thanks for the link, Eleutheria5 and, like you said, Happy Ramadan to the Palestinians!

The Palestinian territories are not nearly the fetid refugee camps the MSM wants people to think. All that foreign aid does have an effect.

At first I thought it read 'Glowing Stream' of Gazans flee with glow sticks after some stupid raghead killed the power.

Having been to Israel twice, I can tell you through personal observance that the Palestinian controlled areas of Israel are trashy as hell because they don't dispose of trash like civilized people would. They just throw it all on the ground where it accumulates. Palestinians live in a self caused pig sty.

Did Hamas drop leaflets on Israel to let them know they were going to be attacked?

And that’s the difference ... Israel telegraphs their attacks on precise targets against Hamas leaving plenty of time for citizens to get out of the way, Hamas just lobs random rockets into Israel not caring what they hit.

Would not be at all surprised if Obama and his minions have at least given this idea some thought. I they are going to cause chaos, they may as well go all out and bring more third world types to this country. Who is going to stop them?

So I'm not too far off the mark when I call them islamofilth?
