One bit of good news - it looks like Egypt is helping Palestinian civilians evacuate Gaza. This needed de-escalation.

The big question, will they be allowed to return to their homes afterwards?

Yep. This might be deportation.

If they're not, the international community will turn against Israel. It's not like the previous times when they left because of encroaching Israeli settlements, in this case injured Gazan's are only being allowed into Egypt for humanitarian reasons, so that they can get treated. Despite, the west's support of Israel, there's still a limit to what they can justify.
