 (NBC News) -- The Israeli military Saturday ordered Palestinians living in the northern Gaza Strip to evacuate the area "for their own safety" ahead of what officials said was a planned heavy offensive over the next 24 hours to combat rocket fire. In a statement Saturday, the military said it would send messages to residents overnight to leave the area.

Brig. Gen. Motti Almoz, the chief military spokesman, said Israel planned to hit the area with heavy force in the next 24 hours as it steps up an offensive against Gaza militants. The death toll is believed to be at least 135 since the offensive began five days ago, officials said. Also Saturday, Isreal's military said it opened fire with artillery into Lebanon in response to rocket fire. Israel fears militant groups in Lebanon may try to open a second front there.
