According to Human Rights Watch researcher Nadia Hardman, individuals are already fighting for survival in the tiny region where they have been forced to go.
Speaking with people who had been uprooted up to 10 times since the start of the war, she told Al Jazeera that they were afraid of a ground invasion.
“Where do we go? is the one thing they keep asking. They have left behind places that were thought to be secure. Given that Israel has continuously failed to offer safe passage, its pledge must be examined in this context, according to Hardman.
“If this evacuation is ordered, it would be illegal.”
