Evacuating Aussies from Israel


Qantas will start evacuating Aussies stranded in Israel from tomorrow with 2 flights due to leave Tel Aviv for London. There are more than 10,000 Australian citizens and tourists in Israel, and those who want to leave the country have been advised to take commercial flights where possible. The problem is airlines are cancelling their scheduled flights, leaving many nations scrambling to get their citizens out. The Australian Government also confirmed Sydney-born grandmother Galit Carbone was killed by Hamas fighters on Saturday – reports say she was murdered in her home by Hamas terrorists. And as we start today, the only power station in Gaza has stopped working after running out of fuel – local authorities say the “catastrophic situation creates a humanitarian crisis for all residents”. The death toll has now climbed to 1,200 in Israel, and 1,100 have been killed in retaliatory airstrikes on Gaza.
