Fifth Canadian confirmed dead in Hamas assault

The Canadian government has confirmed the death of a fifth citizen in Israel after a series of attacks by Hamas terrorists.

Separately, Canadians in the besieged Gaza Strip still have no way to get out.

Global Affairs Canada says three other Canadians who were in Israel when the attacks happened October 7 are still missing. Officials did not provide details of the fifth person who died or those who are missing, citing privacy considerations.

Julie Sunday, an assistant deputy minister with Global Affairs Canada, says the government is still working to get up to 300 Canadians and their relatives out of Gaza as Israel gears up for an expected ground invasion.
