Operation Protective Edge: IDF Warning Leaflets

This is a leaflet dropped by the Israel Defense Forces during Operation Protective Edge warning residents of Gaza to stay away from buildings that house Hamas terrorists or terrorist infrastructure. It reads:

"To the people of the Gaza Strip: The terrorists and smugglers are well aware that their terrorist acts of digging tunnels to smuggle military ammunition is a target for the Israeli Defense Forces, but they keep working and taking cover near your residences.

"Do not stand still. You are being used by terrorists who will not be by your side when you get hurt. Take responsibility for your future!"

This is another leaflet. It reads:

"To the residents of Shuja'iya and Zeitoun,

"In spite of the ceasefire, Hamas and other terrorist organizations continued to fire rockets. Therefore it is the intention of the IDF to carry out aerial strikes against terror sites and operatives in Shu'ja'iya and Zeitoun. A high volume of rocket fire at Israel has originated in this area.

"For your own safety, you are requested to vacate your residence immeidately and head towards Gaza City before 8:00 AM on Wednesday, July 16, 2014. The IDF does not want to harm you or your families. The evacuation is for your own safety. You should not return to the premises until further notice. Whoever disregards these instructions and fails to evacuate immediately endagers their own lives, as well as those of their families."
