Palestinians in southern Gaza brace for an upcoming Israeli offensive with nowhere to go

The World

The Israeli air force dropped leaflets on the eastern part of Khan Yunis, the second largest city in the Gaza Strip, warning people to evacuate. Huge numbers of civilians emptied out of the north after similar warnings from the Israeli military. With nowhere to go, Palestinian civilians in Gaza are increasingly cornered in a war within a geopolitical theater that's left them no place to go. Host Marco Werman talks to Hussein Ibish, a senior resident scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington, about where these civilians can and can't go, and the possible longterm implications of their ordeal.
