Ambulances took 76 seriously injured Palestinians from Gaza into Egypt on Wednesday for the first time since the war between Hamas and Israel began.
A group of 335 foreign passport holders – including British nationals – were also allowed to leave via the Rafah crossing, officials said.
Gaza’s borders have been closed since Hamas’s attack on Israel on 7 October.
Rafah is expected to continue opening for limited time periods to let foreign nationals and injured civilians leave.
The lists of those allowed to cross will be agreed between Egypt and Israel, with embassies from the relevant countries being informed in advance to ensure they can prepare to receive their citizens, Western officials say.
