Overnight last night, a new list of passport holders were approved to leave. This includes foreign citizens or dual national Palestinians.

This includes around 400 Americans who the State Department has been in contact with.

One person on the list of those who can leave, Haneen Okal, said, "We can't describe our feelings of getting evacuated. But we're still sad because what's happening in Gaza. The war is still there. I left my two sisters, my two brothers, and my mom and my dad."

Yesterday, 300 foreign citizens were evacuated as well as dozens of critically wounded Palestinians.

It is unknown as of right now how many will be allowed to leave today.
