Following Israel’s military attacks in Rafah, the Canadian Ministry of Immigration has announced that it will issue temporary residence visas for five thousand Palestinians in Gaza.

Mark Miller, the Canadian Minister of Immigration, stated on Monday, May 27, that 448 Gaza citizens have been issued temporary residence visas for Canada so far, and 41 have entered Canada.

He emphasized that “although leaving Gaza is currently not possible, this situation can change at any time. With the increase in the number of visas, we are ready to help more people in case of a change in conditions.”

Meanwhile, Mélanie Joly, the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs, condemned Israel’s attacks on the city of Rafah in a statement, adding, “We are horrified by the attacks that have resulted in the deaths of Palestinian civilians in Rafah.”

The Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs clarified that she does not support Israel’s operations in Rafah.

She has called on world leaders to enforce the International Court’s ruling to stop the war in Gaza, stating that “this level of human suffering must end. We are calling for an immediate ceasefire.”

The Gaza Ministry of Health reported that nearly 36,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s attack on Gaza.
