Gazans' choice of risking streets or facing Israeli rockets

The media are being told not to go out on the streets at night because it is too dangerous, therefore you have to wonder if it's going to be safe for the residents to do so as well.

You also have to ask the question whether the residents have received the warning sent by text message to evacuate certain areas in the region and head to Gaza City.

There are many power outages across Gaza at the best of times, especially now this heavy bombardment has resumed in the last few hours.

Have they got the warning? If they have, where will they go? Will they come to an area like Gaza City, which itself has seen several strikes throughout the past days.

People here are facing the terrible choice of stay in the face of this Israeli bombardment or try and escape and take their chances out on the streets.
