US to evacuate Americans from Israel to Cyprus on cruise ship

Haifa (Israel) (AFP) – With Israel moving towards a ground attack in the Gaza Strip, the Rhapsody of the Seas cruise ship is set to evacuate US nationals and their immediate family members from Israel to Cyprus. “Unfortunately, I can’t continue to live here anymore” says a US citizen waiting in a queue at the port of Haifa to board the ship heading to Limassol in Cyprus. Tens of thousands of US passport holders live in Israel and 29 have been confirmed killed in the Hamas attacks on southern Israel on 7 October.
