The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) released a recording of a conversation between a resident of the Gaza and an Israeli intelligence officer. The Palestinian complains in it that Hamas is taking away people's documents and car keys, and preventing them from moving south within the enclave as part of an evacuation.

- They are preventing people from leaving - says a resident of Gaza in a recording published by IDF on the social network X.

- They're taking away personal IDs and car keys - continues the man in the recording. - Who is stopping you? Do you mean traffic? Hamas? - asks the officer. - Yes, yes - replies the man. We cannot verify the authenticity of the recording.

Israelis are pleading for evacuation ahead of a planned ground offensive in the northern Gaza Strip. The Israeli army is planning a large-scale ground operation aimed at capturing Gaza City and destroying Hamas leadership. The terrorist movement had previously called on residents not to listen to evacuation calls.

According to the IDF, the man had been calling from the city of Jabalia in the northern Gaza Strip. Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians try to move from the north of the enclave to the south.

On Saturday, Israel accused Hamas of preventing Palestinians from moving south and building roadblocks on evacuation routes. Aerial photos of convoys forming on roads in the Gaza Strip due to Hamas's roadblocks were also published.
