Today (Thursday November 15), the IDF dispersed leaflets above several locations in the Gaza Strip. These leaflets warn the residents of the Gaza Strip to stay away from Hamas' and other terror organizations' operatives and facilities that pose a risk to their safety.
 
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.

In addition to the leaflets, over 20,000 phone calls have been made to warn the residents of the Gaza Strip to vacate areas that may be targeted in the near future. The IDF is making every effort to minimize the collateral damage to Gaza's civilians.
