Six ambulances carrying wounded Palestinians arrive in Egypt today through the Rafah border crossing with the war-torn Gaza Strip, a border official tells AFP.

The patients are undergoing medical examinations at the border before being transferred to hospitals, the official says, adding that the exit of foreigners from Gaza is also expected to resume today.

A senior US official said on Friday that Hamas tried to sneak its fighters out of the Gaza Strip in ambulances that evacuated dozens of wounded Palestinians to Egypt last week.
