The IAF dropped flyers onto Rafiach in southern Gaza explaining to them that they shouldn’t approach the border with Israel and try to break through.
The dropped letter stated:
Terrorist organizations operating among you, they use you as cover. Gaza residents are risking their lives on a regular basis because of the terrorist organizations. Their use of your residential areas, your houses and backyards and are creating a direct threat to your life, your children and your family.
Anything that will be viewed as a threat to Israeli territories, any attempt to breach the fence from your territories will result in a response designed to defend Israel’s sovereignty and ensure security to the population.
Warning: approaching the security fence within less than 300 meters will endanger your life.
IDF will use at any time, any and all the tools available to them to prevent anyone from approaching the fence and to disperse them by any means, including shooting if need be.
An ounce of prevention …
Maybe they should have added something more explicit about the rockets and mortars?
