According to ABC News, the Australian Government has extended temporary visas to hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza.

“The Department of Home Affairs has confirmed 860 visas have been approved for Palestinians with connections to Australia between October 7 to November 20,” the report said.

The GazaPassage Pledge is part of the organization’s Phase II plan it announced on October 27. Six days later, the UAE accepted the pledge in allowing 1000 families of injured children to leave Gaza.

Egypt has publicly claimed to oppose all such efforts.

GazaPassage is working to ensure the UAE, Australia, Egypt, and other nations and organizations around the world help non-combatants leave Gaza for humanitarian purposes.

GazaPassage formally published its pledge on December 3 for broad distribution. It is republished below.
