LISTEN: Israel warns Gazan civilians to flee to safety 4 minutes before Israel destroys a terror target

  • Listen to the recording of Israel warning Gaza civilians to distance themselves before Israel destroys a terror target 

No country fighting a war protects enemy civilians as much as Israel. When Israel finds a strategic terror target that has been placed in the middle of civilians, as Palestinian terror organizations usually do, Israel’s priority whenever possible is to warn the civilians nearby before destroying the terror target. 

The following is a recording of the conversation between an Israel Security agent and a Gazan resident yesterday, Aug. 6, 2022, coming while Palestinian Islamic Jihad was launching hundreds of rockets and missiles at Israeli civilians. As can clearly be heard, the Israeli agent is warning the Gazans that Israel is about to destroy the terror building, and confirming that all the Palestinian civilians had left the target area before Israel bombed. 

Text of recording of the Israeli Security Agent warning a Gazan resident to get all civilians to safety, during the Israel – Islamic Jihad conflict, Aug. 6, 2022 

Israeli Security Agent: “What’s your name, sir?” 

Gazan resident: “Abu Haseira.” 

Israeli Security: “Abu Haseira, may God bless you, listen to me carefully. 

Gazan: “Okay.”  

Israeli Security: “Look my brother, you know how we act, okay? I don’t want anyone to be hurt, I’m telling you that I see people returning to homes, to buildings, and going out. Now, help me, is the Khalifa building empty?” 

Gazan: “There’s no one there now.” 

Israeli Security: “Okay, are you certain there’s no one there now, are you sure? You saw it with your own eyes?” 

Gazan: “I see with my own eyes that there’s no one on the street.” 

Israeli Security: “Okay, are the homes empty behind the house, where the stores are?” 

Gazan: “They’re all empty.” 

Israeli Security: “So who are those four people I saw coming out four minutes ago?” 

Gazan: “We told them to go out because they’re going to bomb the house out back, so they went out, they were afraid about where to go, then they went out.” 

Israeli Security: “Okay, now listen, all the buildings and homes around the Khalifa building are empty, right?” 

Gazan: “Yes.” 

Israeli Security: “Listen to what’s going to happen in four minutes, okay? Soon I’m going to open fire, I will fire a warning rocket, okay? I don’t want people standing in the intersection.” 

This phone conversation was held during Israel’s Operation Breaking Dawn against Islamic Jihad terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip 

During the 2021 war with the terrorists in Gaza, Palestinian Media Watch also published exclusive footage of the Israeli security forces verifying that another terror target had also been fully vacated. PMW also published similar footage of Israeli warnings before Israel destroyed the broadcasting studio of Hamas TV.
