A family with ties to Chicago has successfully fled Gaza and arrived safely in Egypt after being trapped in the war-torn region for nearly four weeks. Emilee Rauschenberger, her husband Mohammed, and their five children had been visiting Gaza when the conflict between Hamas and Israel escalated into an Israeli ground invasion. Emilee expressed relief and happiness at being out of Gaza, but also concern for those who remain. After numerous attempts, the family was able to cross the border into Egypt on Thursday. The news of their escape reached the White House, and President Joe Biden announced that 74 American citizens had been brought home.
