"The UN is fully evacuated"

The Jerusalem Post reports a wave of abductions in Gaza. It says that westerners are being escorted to the border.

Following a flurry of abductions Tuesday afternoon, foreigners in the Gaza Strip fled for the Israeli border with the help of the Palestinian police.

"Everyone has left except for the head of the ICRC mission and us," said Grant Leaity, of the humanitarian aid organization Medicins Sans Frontier. "The UN is fully evacuated and the journalists have left too."

Angry Palestinians abducted two French women doctors of Medecins du Monde, a Swiss delegate of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and three unidentified foreigners. Two French journalists were also abducted, but it was unclear if they were from the hotel.
Now why would it be a good idea for the Palistinians to exclude all westerners from Gaza?

I expect a full scale war.
