Hundreds of Americans escape Gaza

As evacuations into Egypt continue, we have learned that over 300 Americans have escaped from Gaza through the Rafah border crossing.

That news comes from Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer, who spoke to CBS.

Last week, at least 400 Americans were cleared to leave Gaza via Egypt. According to Fox News, the State Department is working to assign departure dates for those remaining in Gaza.

Finer says the White House is also continuing intense negotiations to free U.S. citizens taken captive by Hamas.
