The IDF raised the level of alert along the border with Gaza on Wednesday after Hamas forces were seen evacuating military posts, potentially in preparation for military action against Israel.

The IDF also noted bellicose statements made by the Hamas in recent days.

“In light of Hamas statements and the evacuation of Hamas outposts, the Southern Command decided to reinforce the Gaza Division and close several Israeli roads in the area surrounding the Gaza Strip for security reasons,” the IDF said in a statement on Twitter.

“The IDF operates in order to ensure the security of civilians in the area, will not tolerate any aggression against Israeli civilians or soldiers, and is prepared for a wide variety of scenarios.”
