500 Evacuees From Gaza Depart For Egypt As Conflict Resumes

500 Foreign Nationals Leave War-Torn Gaza To Egypt As Evacuations Resume


Approximately 500 foreign and dual nationals, along with several injured Palestinians, were moved from the Israeli-bombed Gaza Strip to Egypt on Sunday, as per reports from both sides of the border.
An Egyptian security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, stated, “About 500 foreign nationals from 15 different countries entered Egypt.”

AlQahera News, an outlet with close ties to the Egyptian intelligence services, stated that an additional “seven wounded Palestinians” crossed the terminal.

Rafah serves as the sole exit out of Gaza not under Israel’s control and had been closed on Friday and Saturday.

The majority of Gaza’s 2.4 million residents are unable to flee the conflict that erupted between the territory’s Hamas rulers and Israel on October 7.

The border authority of the Hamas government in Gaza urged “all foreign passport holders and people on evacuation lists” to report to the terminal, located at the southern tip of the Gaza Strip and leading to Egypt’s Sinai.

Since November 1, dozens of injured Palestinians have been evacuated to Egyptian hospitals, with hundreds of dual nationals and foreigners, including Americans, French, Russians, and Poles, also departing through Rafah.

The deadliest Gaza war began after Hamas fighters entered Israel’s militarized border on October 7, resulting in approximately 1,200 deaths, mainly civilians, and the taking of around 240 hostages, as per the most recent Israeli figures.

Israeli officials have stated that among the captives, at least 30 are children.

Israel’s forceful response has resulted in the deaths of over 11,000 people, mostly civilians, including thousands of children, according to the latest figures from the health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza.
