Russia Orders Navy Ships to Remain Near Gaza

Russia has ordered its navy ships to remain in the Mediterranean to help evacuate its citizens from Gaza, in the event of further escalation in the conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Russian news agencies reported on Friday.

A ceasefire was declared between the two sides on Wednesday after eight days of the IDF's Operation Pillar of Defense, which destroyed much of Hamas' terror infrastructure in Gaza.
