This is notable especially in contrast to these flyers dropped by the Israeli Defense Force around the same time in Gaza:

These warn the residents of Beit Lahia of impending airstrikes against terror infrastructures in the area,
and ‘request’ that they evacuate their residencies and move south by 12 pm. It concludes,
‘The IDF’s campaign will be short and temporary. Those who fail to comply with the instructions will endanger their lives and the lives of their families. Beware.’

This type of flyer represents a conflict within itself – acting as both a weapon of conflict and provision of peace. It is an accomplice to the violence that is occurring imminently, it is a threat to disengage with terrorism to avoid being an enemy of the state, and it is also a benevolent warning. The same flyer was delivered by text message.
