TEL-AVIV, November 20 (Itar-Tass) — More than a hundred Russian citizens intend to leave Gaza soon because of the worsening situation in the Palestianian coastal enclave. Some 100-120 people want to go to Egypt, said Yelena Alyan, a worker of the Russian consulate.
The Russian consulate helps Russian citizens and citizens of the CIS leave Gaza for Egypt, she said. The Russian diplomats in Ramallah are keeping the situation under control and render them all the necessary assistance and ensure coordination of the humanitarian operations with the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Israeli side, Yelena Alyan said.
The matter concerns mostly Russian women married to Palestinian citizens and their children who as a rule also have the Russian citizenship. Citizens of Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Moldova and Kyrgyzstan are also planning to leave Gaza, the consulate source said.
