Following the terrible terrorist attacks that took place in Israel this weekend, which resulted in the deaths of over 30 Americans, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Thursday that another 200 Americans had been evacuated from Israel via an emergency airlift that he had ordered.
Following the signing of an executive order ordering Florida resources to assist in returning Americans, the Republican presidential candidate made the news.
Two planes earlier this week that brought roughly 300 Americans home were welcomed by him.
Another flight bringing more than 200 Americans home from Israel landed in Florida early this morning.

DeSantis drew attention to the supplies Florida gave to Israel, which the latter received yesterday.
On Tuesday, DeSantis declared that his administration had transported 85 pallets of donated goods on two big planes.
There were 735 ace bandages provided, as well as about 5,000 medical gowns, 84 IV kits, 30,000+ needles and syringes, 57 ventilators, and 10,000+ boxes of surgical gloves.
Florida provided more than 1,000 toys for kids, 300 sleeping bags, 1,000 hygiene products, and more than 2,000 pieces of clothes in addition to the medical supplies.
