BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel on Friday warned residents of the Gaza Strip to stay away from Hamas operatives, Palestinians who received the messages said and the army confirmed.

"The messages were sent to 12,000 residents of the Gaza Strip," an army spokeswoman told Ma'an. "It warned them to stay away from Hamas operatives," she said.

Rana Baker, a Palestinian blogger in Gaza, said her father received one of the messages. She uploaded a picture of a message that showed the sender as "IDF".

"The next phase is on the way. Stay away from Hamas elements," it read.

On Thursday the Israeli army said it dispersed leaflets above several locations in the Gaza Strip warning residents to stay away from Hamas and other armed groups.

"The leaflets stress that Hamas is dragging the region toward violence, and that the IDF is prepared to defend the residents of the State of Israel until quiet is restored to the region," an army statement said at the time.

The text of the leaflets said: "For your own safety, take responsibility for yourselves and avoid being present in the vicinity of Hamas operatives and facilities and those of other terror organizations that pose a risk to your safety.

"Hamas is once again dragging the region to violence and bloodshed. The IDF is determined to defend the residents of the State of Israel. This announcement is valid until quiet is restored to the region."

The leaflets were signed: "Israel Defense Forces Command."

I wonder if Hamas has sent similar messages to the 1 million Israeli civilians they indiscriminately target, with over 500 rockets. Israel clearly doesn't want to kill innocent Palestinians, because when they do, OPEC, the EU and US make Israel stop fighting Hamas soon-after. Israel would rather continue killing Hamas and other radical-Islamic terrorists. Furthermore, the hypocrisy of condemning Israel, whilst Syria continues to kill tens of thousands of its own citizens, including Palestinians!

HAHAHA the Sun, I would never degrade myself - I read all news forums - I actually use 'newsnow', which gives me access to all articles in English worldwide - e.g. Al Jazeera, Maan, Haaretz, Gaurdian etc... also BBC has been accused of being anti-Israeli. Also, prior to Israel killing that Hamas terrorist, over 100 rockets had been fired at Israel - http://www.jpost.com/Defense/Article.aspx?id=291300 (11/11/12) - furthermore, you failed to actually respond to what I initially stated! Hahaha..

you all say Israel has a right to defend its self. But Gazans who live in the worlds largest concentration camp, prison or what ever you want to all it. who are denied free passage, basic commodities, clean water, electricity, medicine, building materials, and the list goes on and on. The most important right of all freedom to live like every other creature god created. The Palestinian are not allowed to fight for this God given right. The should sit and take all the shit that they get. do
