CWith this measure, Israeli authorities are appealing to their citizens to “be extra careful” when traveling to countries such as Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy, among others. In Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania, the alert level is higher.
Countries in South America, such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela and Bolivia, and countries such as China and Russia, as well as the southern part of India, also fall into threat level two, according to the same source. .
Israeli authorities have classified most countries in North Africa and the Sahel, the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region at alert level three, asking Israelis to “reconsider non-essential travel”.
On the other hand, the Israeli Security Council considers that the countries of North and Central America, the continental countries of Southeast Asia, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea and Japan, among others, are safe destinations.
Other European countries, such as Norway, Finland, the Baltic countries, Poland, Belarus and much of the Balkans are also covered by alert level one.
Israeli authorities have acknowledged that since the start of operations in the Gaza Strip against the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, there has been an increase in efforts by Iran and its allies against Israeli and Jewish targets around the world.
“There is a constant and significant increase in incitement, attempted attacks and demonstrations of anti-Semitism in many countries,” the Israeli Security Council further declared.
The ongoing war in the Middle East began on October 7 following an attack by the armed wing of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which included the launch of thousands of rockets into Israel and the infiltration of around 3,000 fighters who killed more than 1,200 people, most of them civilians, and kidnapped another 240 in Israeli villages near the Gaza Strip.
In retaliation, the Israel Defense Forces directed a relentless offensive by air, land and sea in that Palestinian enclave, which is facing a serious humanitarian crisis due to the collapse of hospitals and the absence of shelter, drinking water, food, medicine and electricity.
Authorities in the Gaza Strip, controlled by the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas since 2007, today increased the number of deaths in the Israeli offensive to almost 15,900, while more than 250 Palestinians died at the hands of forces in Tel Aviv or in attacks carried out by settlers in West Bank and East Jerusalem since October 7th.
The parties ceased hostilities for a week under a truce brokered by Qatar, Egypt and the United States, but clashes returned last Friday after a lack of agreement to extend the agreement.
The Israeli military campaign has raised criticism internationally, due to the high number of civilian victims.
