Egypt reported more than 800 foreigners evacuated from Gaza in one day.

More than 800 foreigners were evacuated on Sunday from the Gaza Strip through the Rafah checkpoint on the border with Egypt, CNN reports citing the Egyptian border service.

“At least 826 foreign citizens were evacuated from Gaza through the Rafah checkpoint on Sunday,” the channel quoted an Egyptian border guard spokesman as saying.

CNN notes that this number of foreigners evacuated from Gaza in one day was the largest since the escalation began.

The channel also reported, citing a government official, that nine wounded Palestinians were also able to pass through Rafah on Sunday.


Rafah is the only border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip.
