BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army said Thursday it dispersed leaflets above several locations in the Gaza Strip warning residents to stay away from Hamas and other armed groups.

"The leaflets stress that Hamas is dragging the region toward violence, and that the IDF is prepared to defend the residents of the State of Israel until quiet is restored to the region," an army statement said.

The text of the leaflets say: "For your own safety, take responsibility for yourselves and avoid being present in the vicinity of Hamas operatives and facilities and those of other terror organizations that pose a risk to your safety.

"Hamas is once again dragging the region to violence and bloodshed. The IDF is determined to defend the residents of the State of Israel. This announcement is valid until quiet is restored to the region. "

They are signed: "Israel Defense Forces Command."
