IDF warns Palestinians

According to Yediot Ahronot, via the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs' Daily Alert,
the IDF has been sending a message to the Palestinian population in recent days: "Stay away from places where terrorists are present - we intend to strike them and you are liable to be harmed."

The purpose of the information campaign is to hurt the motivation and morale of the terrorists and to strengthen Israel's humanitarian and ethical image among Palestinians and the international community.

IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon said Wednesday, "terrorist leaders are purposely endangering the Palestinian civilian population, among whom they operate, in order to protect themselves."
