Hamas has begun evacuating all its military sites in Gaza, according to a report in Quds Press.

A Hamas official told Quds Press that Hamas believes that Israel will be attacking Gaza very soon, based on large-scale IDF maneuvers that began on Sunday. That drill was actually a scheduled exercise that is part of the IDF’s 2018 training plan.


The Hamas official added that Hamas takes these IDF exercises very seriously, and has ordered the evacuation of all training bases, outposts and command centers that can be easily targeted from the air.

All political and military leaders have also been told to stay out of sight.

Hamas leadership went into hiding at the beginning of the week.
