The Mexican doctor Barbara Lango managed to leave today, November 3, 2023, from the Gaza Strip where she was stranded after the explosion war between Israel and Hamas on October 7 when the Palestinian group launched a surprise attack and crossed the border into Palestinian territory.

The Mexican had lived in Gaza for more than a year and a half and it was there where she met her now husband Suleiman Said Al-Fayoumi, who helped her by being her translator. Finding herself at ground zero of the conflict, the doctor sought to leave the territory controlled by Hamas, but Israel did not allow humanitarian corridors for both the entry of aid and the exit of people. However, after several days and after negotiations she authorized opening a channel on the border with Egypt for the exit of foreigners.

Finally, Bárbara Lango left the conflict zone this Friday along with her husband Suleiman Said Al-Fayoumi and they arrived at the Mexican embassy in Egypt, from where the procedures for their repatriation to our country will be carried out.
