A plane carrying 47 Ukrainians who have been evacuated from Gaza landed in Moldova on March 12, Ukraine's military intelligence agency reported on Telegram.

The evacuation of foreigners from Gaza began on Nov. 1 when Egypt finally opened the Rafah checkpoint, and the first Ukrainians were allowed to leave on Nov. 7. In total, 363 Ukrainian citizens have been evacuated from Gaza then, the agency said.
