Israel has amassed troops to Gaza border this week. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said it was “preparing to implement a wide range of offensive operative plans,” which shall include a coordinated attack from all three fronts – air, sea, and land – against Hamas in Gaza.

The IDF has stated that they have already mobilised hundreds of thousands of servicemen for the counteroffensive, according to a statement translated by NBC News.

Ahead of the looming, Israel had given 24 hours notice to roughly 1.1 million Palestinians to evacuate northern Gaza. The order was heavily criticised by many humanitarian agencies as they cited that it is impossible for mobilisation of such big crowd in such small time frame. The deadline has now passed but there has been no sign of incrusion.
