The Fellowship | February 13, 2022
Amid fears of escalating conflict, Israel’s Prime Minister has called for Israelis to leave Ukraine, and the IDF is ready to assist if needed. Israel is preparing for emergency immigration of Ukrainian Jews caught in the rising tensions if necessary, reports the Times of Israel:
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett called on Israeli citizens in Ukraine to leave the country immediately, following a second meeting held with top security and diplomatic officials on Saturday due to the growing fears of an imminent Russian invasion.
There were around 4,500 Israelis registered with the Israeli embassy in Ukraine, the Foreign Ministry told the Times of Israel. The ministry estimated that there are between 10,000-15,000 Israelis in the country. The Foreign Ministry also further raised its travel warnings to the area.
