IDF Spokesperson in Arabic, Avichay Adraee, in a message to the residents of the Gaza Strip:

We are in a temporary ceasefire and the war is not yet over. The northern area of the Gaza Strip is a dangerous war zone and movement there is prohibited. For your safety, you must stay in the humanitarian area in the south of the Strip.” The IDF will not allow any movement of residents from the south of the Strip to the north under any circumstances.

Gaza: On the Salah al-Din axis from south to north, Palestinians are moving north. IDF will not allow them to return to the north of the Strip.

Despite the IDF Spokesperson’s announcement, Gazans continue to arrive in the northern area of the Strip – attached are documentations from Beit Hanoun and Jabalia.

How This All Started – October 7th Massacres

The Israel-Hamas War of 2023 began abruptly on October 7th, when Hamas orchestrated a comprehensive land, sea, and air assault on Israel from the Gaza Strip. This attack, coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Shemini Atzeret, caught many by surprise, especially as many IDF soldiers were on leave.

The assault was unprecedented in its scale, launching over 2,200 rockets in 20 minutes, breaching the border with explosives and bulldozers, and even infiltrating via motorboats and paragliders.

This devastating attack resulted in over 1,200 deaths, multiple instances of sexual violence and rape, mutilations, kidnappings of babies, women and children and various other atrocities perpetrated on Israelis by the Palestinian attackers and mobs, marking it as the deadliest day for Israel since its independence​​.

In response, the IDF declared a state of alert and began mobilizing its reserves, calling up more than 350,000 over the following days. By October 8th, Israel had declared itself in a state of war, the first time since the Yom Kippur War in 1973.

Air strikes were initiated in the Gaza Strip, and a total siege was imposed, cutting off essential supplies. The war saw the difficulty in targeting terrorists and their weapon caches due to Gaza’s intricate network of tunnels, complicating rescue efforts for the hostages taken by Hamas​​.

While the war primarily centered on the Gaza Strip, it wasn’t confined to it. IDF intensified its raids in the West Bank and conducted airstrikes for the first time since the second intifada. Skirmishes with Hezbollah near the Lebanese border raised fears of a second front.

Even the Houthi forces in Yemen attempted strikes on southern Israel, indicating a broader coordination among Iran-led resistance factions. The conflict culminated in a temporary 4 day hostage deal ceasefire agreement on November 24, mediate
