The British Foreign Office updated its travel guidance on Friday, telling its citizens in Gaza to follow the advice from Israeli authorities to relocate south.
“The Israeli military announced on the morning of 13 October that the entire population of Gaza north of Wadi Gaza should relocate to southern Gaza,” the Foreign Office said in its latest update.
“We advise following this advice issued by the Israeli authorities. We recognise this is a fast-moving situation that poses significant risks.”
Israel’s military on Friday warned all civilians in Gaza City to evacuate “southwards,” as the UN said an order for the mass evacuation of northern Gaza was “impossible” without major humanitarian consequences. Hamas militants told Palestinians living in the besieged Gaza Strip not to leave their homes.
