Foreign nationals and dual citizens who have sought to leave Gaza may be allowed to enter Egypt starting Wednesday. The Hamas border authority has released a list with the names of 400 people, and officials asked that they present themselves Wednesday morning at the Rafah crossing on the southern edge of the Gaza Strip and Egypt’s northern Sinai region. It was not clear whether those who went to the crossing would be allowed through it.
Egypt, which oversees the crossing, has refused to open it to civilians, warning that an influx of Palestinian refugees could destabilize the region. The Rafah crossing’s closure has left thousands of foreign nationals and Palestinians with dual nationality — including at least 400 American citizens — stuck in the war zone.
