The Israel Defense Forces says it is expanding humanitarian pauses in the northern Gaza Strip to enable Palestinians to evacuate south.

The IDF’s Arabic-language Spokesman, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, says on X that the Salah a-Din road will be open for southbound movement for a total of seven hours today, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Previous days saw the Salah a-Din humanitarian corridor open for four to six hours.

Adraee says the IDF will also be allowing Palestinians to evacuate to southern Gaza via the Strip’s coastal road.

Additionally, he says the IDF will make “tactical pauses in military activities” in the Jabaliya refugee camp today between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., so that residents can reach the humanitarian corridors to evacuate south.
