The message, written in Arabic, asked Palestinian civilians to evacuate their homes in northern Gaza in order to avoid harm during IAF strikes targeting members of Hamas.

The text of the message, translated into English read:

"From these areas, rocket fire is being launched against the State of Israel. For your safety, you are requested to leave your homes immediately and travel towards Gaza City by Wednesday at 8 a.m. The IDF does not wish to harm you or your families. Clear the area to safeguard your lives. Do not return to the area until further notice. Anyone who does not heed these instructions... endangers his life and that of his family."
