Global Affairs Canada says it’s working with local authorities to extract other Canadians from Gaza.

Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly says the first group of Canadians has left the Gaza Strip, where Israel’s military is conducting operations to uproot Hamas.

“I would like to thank my Egyptian, Israeli, and Qatari counterparts for making this operation successful,” Ms. Joly said in a video posted on social media on Nov. 7.

Global Affairs Canada says a group of “approximately 20-25” were met by Canadian diplomats on the Egyptian side of the border and that it expects 80 Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and eligible family members will leave Gaza today.
