Israel’s evacuation orders causing ‘fear and panic’

Israel’s evacuation maps are causing fear and panic said Melanie Ward, chief executive of humanitarian organisation Medical Aid for Palestinians.

“I cannot overstate the fear, panic and confusion that these Israeli maps are causing civilians in #Gaza, including my own staff. People cannot run from place to place to try to escape Israel’s bombs, nor does international law expect them to.

"What is being done is unconscionable,” Ward said in a post on X on Sunday.

On Friday divided Gaza into more than 600 zones so they could evacuate from specific zones.
