Between 500 and 600 Americans are trapped in the Gaza Strip, which has been completely sealed off by Israel since Hamas launched an attack in October. While hundreds of Americans have been flown out of Israel, no one has been allowed to leave Gaza, except for four hostages released by Hamas. The U.S. State Department has been negotiating with Israel, Egypt, and Hamas to open the border gates at the Rafah crossing, but no agreement has been reached. Families of the trapped Americans are scared and feel abandoned, with no access to food, water, or power.
