BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's army said Tuesday it had dropped leaflets over the Gaza Strip warning residents to stay away Hamas facilities.

Israeli air craft dropped thousands of leaflets over numerous Gaza neighborhoods warning civilians to get out of the way, as its army prepared for a possible invasion of the enclave.

The first said:

"In the central Gaza city, you are required to stay between the areas of Salah A-din from the west, Amar Al-Muchtar from the north, Al-Nasser from the east and Al-Quds St. from the south.

The second leaflet said:

"To the residents of of the outskirts of Shati, Al-Atatra, Beit Lahiya and Beit Hanoun:

"For your safety, you are required to evacuate your residences immediately and move towards central Gaza city via Al-Falujah, Al-Udda and Salah A-din.
