US rescue group in Israel navigating an ‘absolute mess’ on the ground

Save Our Allies co-founder Tim Kennedy is detailing the “incredibly difficult” challenges his rescue organization is facing trying to evacuate Americans trapped in Israel.

The former Army sniper joined “FOX & Friends” Friday from near the Gaza border in hard-hit Ashkelon to discuss the logistical hurdles as Israeli forces prepare a ground invasion to root out Hamas.

“We were in Egypt earlier this morning trying to figure out how they’re going to be getting these people out… there’s tons, tens of thousands of refugees that are going to be coming out of there. We have American hostages, American refugees. It’s just an absolute mess,” Kennedy began. 

“But one of the scariest things is the temperament around Israel by their neighbors. Being in Egypt, it was incredibly difficult, one, to move through the border and to obviously be an American moving into Egypt related to an Israel crisis. It’s difficult here.”
