Two writers from Reuters, Mohammed and Saleh Salem wrote a story today describing misery in Gaza. In their story, they found one mother of five who thought leaving for Egypt was her “worst nightmare.”

GazaPassage has reported of high demand and support for Gazans to leave Gaza, including from once HAMAS supporters. HAMAS members themselves not only wished to leave Gaza, but would like a price break from Egyptian border guards charging $5k per head.

Several nations have taken the pledge formalized by GazaPassage allowing people to come to the UAE or Australia.

Saleh Salem is listed on LinkedIn as a Senior Desk Editor on the Pictures Desk on LinkedIn.

Prior to November 26, 2023, Mohammed Salem hadn’t written a story for Reuters since the summer of 2022 when he wrote his first story and only article related to Mecca.

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

GazaPassage has added a second prong to save innocent lives by supporting, whose goal is “to help create the framework of a governing body in the Gaza-of-the-future to ensure an overall and lasting peace.”

Reuters is not alone in denying safety for Gazans who wish to leave Gaza. Recently, UNRWA Chief in Gaza Lazzarini admitted they existed but seeks to preserve his organization’s position in Gaza.

Reuters has faced accusations of supporting HAMAS since its staff, including photojournalists, were part of the October 7th attacks in Israel.

The Salems acknowledge. The Salems write: “the Gaza-Egypt border fence has been breached in the past.”
