According to Reuters, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi rejected the idea of non-combatants coming to Egypt.

He said: “any such move would turn the Egyptian peninsula into a base for attacks against Israel.”

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

Egypt’s President’s statement appears to ignore any distinction between non-combatants and those who would support terror.
