Foreign nationals and wounded Palestinians crossed into Egypt from Gaza on Wednesday, Egyptian and U.S. officials say, with more than 400 people—including some Americans—allowed to leave in a major diplomatic breakthrough.
President Biden said he expected that more American citizens would be allowed to leave over the coming days. The State Department said U.S. officials are in contact with 400 Americans who want to leave the enclave. Egyptian officials said later Wednesday there were about 45 injured among the 361 people who crossed via Rafah. They also said 51 trucks bringing aid were going to Gaza.
