Also, at least 70 people were killed and around 200 others injured in a brutal massacre committed by Israeli airstrikes against Palestinians who were forced to flee their homes in Gaza City toward southern Gaza due to the intensive Israeli bombardment.

Egypt has warned in a statement, Friday that the Israeli army is forcing residents of the Gaza Strip and representatives of the United Nations and international organizations in the Strip to leave their homes within 24 hours and head south.

Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign affairs stressed that this move considered to be a sever violation of the rules of international humanitarian law, and will expose the lives of more than a million Palestinian citizens and their families to the dangers of remaining in the open without shelters to face very harsh humanitarian and security conditions.

Egypt called on the Israeli government to refrain from taking such escalatory steps, as they would have serious consequences on the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip.
