Update: The Israeli military bombed a refugee camp in Gaza on Tuesday, as reported by the Hamas-led Health Ministry. The information was later confirmed by the IDF, stating that the attack targeted a Hamas leader. At least 47 people were killed in this attack, and the death toll could potentially rise. According to Palestinian officials in Gaza, after three weeks of bombings, 8,306 people have died, including nearly 3,500 children. At the same time, an international organization reports that 31 journalists have died in the conflict so far, with 8 injured and 9 missing.

The Rafah crossing point at the border with Egypt was opened on Wednesday, allowing the first foreign citizens to exit the turmoil in the Gaza Strip. Dozens of people had been waiting for the border to open from the early hours. Additionally, a fleet of 80 Egyptian ambulances has arrived to pick up severely injured Palestinians. Under a mediation agreement by Qatar, they will be transported to field hospitals in the Sinai Peninsula. The Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that it is maintaining dialogue for the evacuation of Romanians stranded in Gaza.

The first 100 injured Palestinian and foreign citizens have been evacuated from Gaza to Egypt.

A total of 545 dual citizens will be evacuated from Gaza. Ninety severely injured Palestinians will be taken by the ambulances that have already started to enter the Rafah border point in Gaza. The convoy will transport them to field hospitals in the Sinai Peninsula. According to the BBC, Egypt is constructing such a facility approximately 10 kilometers from the Gaza border.

Around 500 foreign citizens and dual citizens are expected to leave Gaza today, according to a list published by the Gaza Passage and Borders Authority, as reported by Al Jazeera.

The list of foreign citizens and officials from international agencies who will cross the border into Egypt today largely consists of Jordanian citizens.

Romanian citizens are not on the lists requesting to leave Gaza. Approximately 350 individuals with Romanian citizenship or dual citizenship are in Gaza, of which 260 had requested evacuation in the latest report from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that it remains in close contact with Israeli and Egyptian authorities for the evacuation of Romanian citizens and their families through the diplomatic missions in Cairo and Tel Aviv.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed the attacks launched a day ago on the refugee camp in Jabalia, the largest in the Gaza Strip, stating that they had killed a senior Hamas commander and destroyed the underground infrastructure of the terrorist group. At least 50 people were killed following the attacks on Jabalia on Tuesday. The IDF claims that since the beginning of the war on October 7, they have struck 11,000 terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip.”
