MOSCOW. July 9 (Interfax) - All Russians and citizens of other CIS member countries who wished to evacuate Gaza on Monday have crossed the Erez checkpoint on the Israeli border, head of the Russian mission on Palestinian lands Alexei Pogodin told Interfax.

"All 37 people have left Gaza." These include 20 Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians and Kazakhs. "A bus is carrying them to the Israeli-Jordanian border," Pogodin said.

This can mean one of two things, as I see it.

One, Russian and all CIS member states feel it is no longer safe to be in Gaza with Hamas as the sole government.


OR

Two, they know that will be war/fighting between Hamas and (Fatah/Israel/the west) and they are moving their citizens out of harms way.
Does that mean they know for a fact what we all suspect????

All in all, I must say this is not a good sign for peace in the region.
