Israel Creates “Kill Zones” in Gaza Where Soldiers Are Ordered to Shoot and Kill Everyone

HeadlineApr 01, 2024

In other news from Gaza, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports the Israeli military has created so-called kill zones inside Gaza where Israeli troops kill anyone who crosses into the area. One reserve officer told the paper, “As soon as people enter it, mainly adult males, orders are to shoot and kill, even if that person is unarmed.” The report comes days after Al Jazeera aired footage of four unarmed Palestinian men being killed as they walked among the ruins near Khan Younis. In an interview with Haaretz, one Israeli officer acknowledged the four men were killed even though they “didn’t endanger our forces.”
