The Norwegian government arranged a special flight that left Cairo for Oslo on Saturday afternoon, helping 80 citizens return home from Gaza, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, APA reports.

The ministry said that these people had accepted the Norwegian government's offer of assisted return and had exited Gaza on Wednesday and Friday.

"We are happy that many Norwegian citizens have been able to get out of Gaza and are now on their way home to Norway. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to work to ensure that all Norwegian citizens who wish to get out of Gaza (can do it) as quickly as possible," said Norway's Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide in a release.

So far, 101 Norwegians have successfully crossed the border from Gaza, said the ministry. It added that on Saturday, authorization was granted for another 146 Norwegian citizens to depart from Gaza through the Rafah border crossing into Egypt.
