Four Sinaloans, including Juan Cuevas, a sports reporter from Mazatlán, were rescued along with a group of Mexicans who were at the airport in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The communicator was leading a group of 51 tourists on a religious tour between Palestine and Israel, when war broke out with the Islamic group Hamas.
“A little while ago some missiles were heard exploding. “You hear a missile, you hear something fall,” he said while crying during the live broadcast on his Facebook page, Passion Uno.
Cuevas is responsible for a group of 51 people who camped for several days at the Tel Aviv airport waiting to leave Israel, because commercial flights were canceled.
“We are here in Tel Aviv, I arrived in Jerusalem on October 1. We arrived and everything was fine, I was in charge of religious tourism, we went to Bethlehem in Palestine and then we walked north to the country of Nazareth. We went to Nazareth and “We have recovered, and we arrived in Jerusalem. It was there in Jerusalem that the lawsuit began, which was very ugly,” explained Juan.
“I brought a group of 51 passengers: 4 from Sinaloa, 7 from Michoacán and 40 from Nayarit.”
This October 10, the journalist and the group of tourists who accompanied him boarded a Mexican Air Force flight, sent with the purpose of evacuating the Mexicans trapped in Israel.
Juan pointed out that Governor Rubén Rocha Moya established direct communication with him, and that the Mexican Ambassador to Spain, Quirino Ordaz Coppel, also intervened in his rescue.
“We are fine, we decided to stay at the airport because it is a quiet and safe place here. “We’re good, we’re calm,” he said.
“The Governor told me that he already talked to the Embassy to get us out, and he asked me how many of us are from Sinaloa and I told him ‘there are 4 of us, but for me there are 51, I can’t leave even one here. ‘”
Around 7:00 pm on October 10, the journalist made a live broadcast where he pointed out that his group was about to board the flight sent by the Government of Mexico.
“To let you know that we are going to Mexico, the 51 passengers from Mexico who submitted the request to be rescued in Tel Aviv by the planes sent by López Obrador. “I am very happy because we are going to Mexico, thank God,” he celebrated.
“I’m happy because we’re going to fit in the plane. We are going to Mexico. “I feel, plebes, like I’ve been born again.”
