(January 28, 2024 / JNS) Hundreds of Palestinians evacuating from Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip chanted “Down with Hamas” on Saturday in a video posted on social media by Israeli authorities as cracks in the terror group’s control of the enclave continue to grow.
The video was posted on social media by the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), a unit within the Israeli Defense Ministry which coordinates civilian issues between the Israeli government, military, international organizations and the Palestinian Authority.
“Exclusive footage: Myriads of Gazans evacuate to a secure humanitarian area, chanting ‘Down with Hamas.’ The video was captured in the new passage in western Khan Younis, enabling Gaza residents to access the Al-Muwasi humanitarian area,” tweeted COGAT.

According to COGAT official Maj.-Gen. Rasan Aliyan, “In recent days, we have been seeing more and more evidence of public criticism voiced by the residents of Gaza against the Hamas terrorist organization. The residents of the Gaza Strip rightly prefer their own well-being and the safety of their children to the continued strengthening of Hamas militants and the terrorist activities that harm them and their future.”
