Israel has drawn up an evacuation plan for civilians along the coast in the Gaza Strip, The Wall Street Journal reports, and has presented it to Egypt in recent days.
According to the WSJ, the plan envisions 15 sites containing 25,000 tents each across Gaza, running from the southern edge of Gaza City south to the Al Mawasi area north of Rafah.
Rafah, a city that sits on the Gaza-Egypt border, is the target of the next IDF offensive, according to Israeli leaders. The US and regional allies have warned about the humanitarian dangers of the IDF moving into the city, in which more than 1 million Gazan refugees are sheltering.
Citing Egyptian officials, the report says that Israel expects the camps, which would include medical facilities, to be funded by the US and Arab partners.
