The Indian embassy in Israel on Sunday issued an advisory to Indian citizens in Israel to stay calm and adhere to the safety protocols issued by the local authorities.

The embassy further highlighted that they are closely monitoring the situation and are in touch with the Israeli authorities.

Moreover, the Indian Embassy is also in touch with members of the Indian community to ensure the safety of Indian citizens.

“Embassy is closely monitoring the situation and is in touch with the Israeli authorities and Indian community members to ensure the safety of all our nationals,” it added.

The embassy further mentioned an emergency helpline number for Indian citizens in Israel.

Iran, on Saturday, attacked Israel with more than 200 projectiles, in response to an attack on its consulate in Syria.

Amid ongoing tensions between Iran and Israel, earlier this week, the Ministry of External Affairs issued a travel advisory to Indian citizens on Friday and asked them to refrain from travelling to both countries until further notice.

The ministry further asked people who are currently in Iran or Israel to contact Indian embassies and register themselves.
