Israel Defense Forces: Recorded message phone warning

The Israel Defense Forces have used recorded telephone messages to warn some 100,000 residents of Gaza to leave their homes before 08:00 (05:00 GMT) on Wednesday.

The message has been warning residents of three areas of Gaza - Zaytoun and Shegaya in East Gaza, Beit Lahiya in North Gaza - to evacuate.

The warning came as militants continued to fire rockets at Israeli cities, the IDF said, adding that its Iron Dome missile shield had intercepted 10, including four launched at Tel Aviv.

Listen to one of two messages that people are receiving.
