The first group of Greek families evacuated from war-torn Sudan arrived at the Elefsina air base west of Athens, Greece on Tuesday morning.
According to Ekathimerini, a Hellenic Air Force transport plane brought 13 Greeks and four spouses of different nationalities, who had been taken to Djibouti and from there to Egypt before being flown back home.
The passengers include three children and a man who recently underwent surgery for injuries to his legs.
A second evacuation operation is also underway to get a Greek man back to Greece as soon as possible, as he needs to undergo surgery.
This comes as the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the evacuation of ten more Greeks from Sudan on Tuesday. The ten boarded German planes and have arrived in Amman, Jordan.
At least 80 more are still stranded in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, while fighting between two military factions continues despite a truce brokered by Saudi Arabia and the United States.
