The first group of individuals to travel to Israel under the government-to-government (G2G) agreement has arrived, according to Ministry of External Affairs official spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal. He emphasised that the Indian government has encouraged the Israeli authorities to consider their safety seriously.

At the Maharshi Dayanand University in Rohtak, Haryana, a recruitment drive for around 10,000 Indian construction workers in Israel started earlier this year.

About 18,000 Indian labourers are employed in Israel, according to MEA Spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal, who brought up this point during Thursday’s weekly press briefing.

“The Indian Embassy in Israel is constantly in touch with them for their safety and it is a major concern for us,” he stated.

“The first batch of people under the G2G agreement have gone to Israel,” Jaiswal stated.

He went on to say that they had asked the Israeli government to ensure their safety.

“We take great pride in ensuring their safety. It is crucial that the Israeli authorities take the utmost care of their safety and well-being, as we have requested them to do,” he stated.

Jaiswal underlined the warning for Indian citizens residing in Israel’s border regions and reiterated that the Indian government has pushed the Israeli authorities to take Indian citizens’ safety extremely seriously and take the necessary steps to ensure it.

“There are a lot of Indian nationals living in Israel right now. We have pleaded with Israeli officials and citizens.

Due to current circumstances, India advised its citizens residing in Israel’s border regions last month to go to safer areas inside their own nation.

“All Indian nationals residing in Israel are encouraged to relocate to safe places due to the current security situation and local safety advisories. This is especially important for individuals who work in or visit border areas in the north and south. The Indian Embassy in Israel released an official statement, stating, “The Embassy stays in contact with the Israeli authorities to ensure the safety of all our nationals.”

The warning follows a terror attack by Hezbollah in northern Israel that resulted in the death of a Keralan man employed on an Israeli plantation and the injuries of two other Indian nationals.
