Israeli army urges all Gaza City residents to leave


The Israeli army on Wednesday dropped leaflets on Gaza City urging all residents to leave for safe zones amid an intensified military offensive on the Palestinian territory's main city.

The thousands of leaflets, addressed to "everyone in Gaza City", set out routes out of the city to the south and warned it would "remain a dangerous combat zone", an AFP journalist said.

Israel issued a first formal evacuation order for part of the city on June 27.
