Indian Woman Evacuated From Gaza Arrives in Cairo


Indian Ambassador to Egypt Ajit Gupte on Tuesday received an Indian national who arrived safely in Cairo after being evacuated from the Gaza Strip.Lubna Nazir Shaboo further expressed gratitude to the Indian embassy in Cairo, the Indian embassy in Israel and the Representative Office of India in Ramallah.
The Indian embassy in Cairo also noted that Lubna and her family are in good health.

Sharing on social media X, the Indian embassy in Cairo stated, “Amb @AjitVGupte received Mrs Lubna Nazir Shaboo, Indian national who has just arrived safely in Cairo, after being evacuated from Gaza. She and her family are in good health. Mrs Lubna expressed deep gratitude to @indembcairo , @indemtel and @ROIRamallah for their assistance.”

Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) said, thousands of civilians crossed the Rafah border crossing, which reopened on Tuesday last week to facilitate the passage of foreign nationals and wounded Palestinians from Gaza into Egypt.

In a video posted by the COGAT on X, thousands of civilians were seen crossing the border to save their lives amid Israel Hamas war in the region. It shared the video saying, “Happening now: Thousands pass through the evacuation corridor the @IDF opened for civilians in northern Gaza to move southwards.”
A total of 114 foreign nationals have been evacuated from Gaza to Egypt through the Rafah border crossing so far on Tuesday, CNN reported quoting an Egyptian border official.

The Rafah border crossing is the only access point in and out of Gaza that is not controlled by Israel. Last week, an agreement was reached to allow foreign passport holders and critically injured civilians to depart through Rafah.

Ambulances from the Egyptian Red Crescent were on standby near the border, ready to transport wounded Palestinians to hospitals. Additionally, the General Authority for Crossings and Borders in Gaza announced that the Rafah crossing had opened for foreign nationals and Egyptian citizens listed as of November 1. Only those on the list are permitted to cross.

Nomination Narges Mohammadi, Imprisoned Iranian Activist, Expresses Gratitude for Nobel Peace Prize Nomination in Smuggled Letter <!– –>Narges Mohammadi is serving multiple sentences in Tehran’s Evin Prison. (FILE)STOCKHOLM: Jailed Iranian women’s rights activist Narges Mohammadi has smuggled out a letter of thanks for her Nobel Peace Prize awarded earlier this month, saying it marked a turning point in “empowering protest and social movements worldwide”.The imprisoned women’s rights advocate won the 2023 peace prize on Oct. 6 in a rebuke to Tehran’s theocratic leaders and boost for anti-government protesters, while also drawing the Islamic Republic’s swift condemnation.Mohammadi is serving multiple sentences in Tehran’s Evin Prison amounting to about 12 years imprisonment, one of the many periods she has been detained behind bars, according to the Front Line Defenders rights organisation.Charges include spreading propaganda against the state.In the letter smuggled out of prison and read by her daughter Kiana in a video posted on the Nobel website, Mohammadi said the news of her Nobel prize had been met with cries from her cellmates of “Woman, Life, Freedom”, the slogan of the movement of which she is part.”I am grateful to all of you and urge you to support the people of Iran until the final victory,” she said in the letter read by her daughter, the first official reaction from Mohammadi to her winning the prestigious award.”Victory is not easy, but it is certain.”Tehran, which has called the protest movement in Iran a Western-led subversion, accused the Nobel committee of meddling and politicising the issue of human rights in the wake of the decision to award Mohammadi the peace prize.Mohammadi said she was sending greetings and gratitude to the Nobel Committee on behalf of what she said were 46 women prisoners of conscience and political prisoners held at Evin.Arrested more than a dozen times in her life, and held three times in Evin since 2012, Mohammadi has been unable to see her husband for 15 years and her children for seven.”The strength of this movement lies in the agency of Iranian women. We assuredly know what we want far better than what we do not want,” she said in the letter, the text of which was also published on the Nobel website.”We believe in it, commit to it, and are certain of victory!”(Except for the headline, this story has not been edited by NDTV staff and is published from a syndicated feed.)Waiting for response to load…
