270 Americans returned home after being evacuated amid an intense situation in Israel.
The evacuees were stuck in Israel for over a week after the war with Hamas broke out on the border.
The flight landed at Tampa International Airport and was received by the republican Florida governor Ron DeSantis.
Operation Promised Land
Project Dynamo, a rescue organization led by former military professionals, conducted the rescue operation.
The rescue operation was dubbed the “Operation Promised Land” and the first in US history.
All the evacuees, including 100 children, were delighted to be back after seeing violence and bombs in Israel for over a week.
Israeli Invasion Expected
US President Joe Biden is expected to visit Israel on Wednesday amid the looming threat of Israel’s invasion.
Biden previously warned Israel about its ground invasion of Gaza.
The Israeli military has evacuated homes near its northern border with Lebanon, anticipating a two-front battle in the coming days.
