MOFA to evacuate citizens from Israel
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says a charter flight to evacuate Taiwanese citizens from Israel is scheduled to leave from Tel Aviv later today. The flight will take those seeking evacuation to Italy.
According to the ministry, the flight was organized following an assessment of the current situation by Taiwan's representative office in Tel Aviv.
The foreign ministry is urging all Taiwanese nationals in Israel to use this flight - citing what it's calling "rapidly changing circumstances."
A total of 157 Taiwanese citizens have left Israel since the start of the latest fighting between the Jewish State and Hamas. 147 others remain in the country.
