A New Zealander has made it out of Gaza overnight, crossing into Egypt through the Rafah crossing.

Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters says they're being supported by the New Zealand Embassy in Cairo.

Meanwhile, about one thousand protestors were at Parliament once again urging the government to call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza.

Reporter Soumya Bhamidipati spoke to Charlotte Cook from the protest.
