The Embassy of Ukraine in Israel has issued recommendations in connection with the aggravation of the security situation in this country.

According to Ukrinform, the message of the Embassy of Ukraine in the State of Israel reads: "Due to the escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian confrontation and massive rocket and mortar attacks on the Southern Territories of Israel, as well as possible shelling of the central part of Israel, including the city of Jerusalem, Ukrainian citizens are advised to remain vigilant and closely monitor reports from local competent Israeli authorities to raise awareness of their own security."

In case of shelling, a warning siren can be activated. The Embassy calls on Ukrainian citizens to treat all such warnings as real and follow the instructions of local authorities.

In case of staying in settlements in the immediate vicinity of the Gaza Strip, citizens are advised to immediately use bomb shelters when the air alarm is turned on.

For more information, Ukrainian citizens who are in Israel should follow the website of the internal front command of the Israel Defense Forces.

In case of emergency, Ukrainian citizens should contact the Embassy of Ukraine in the state of Israel by emergency phone: + 972-546-676-782; the Ukrainian diplomatic mission in Ramallah by phone: +972-59-969-95-61.

On May 10, a rocket attack was carried out from the Gaza Strip in southern Israel, and sirens went off in some settlements. In addition, balloons with explosives were launched into Israel.

The Islamic Jihad terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

In response to rocket fire, Israel Defense Forces tanks attacked targets of the radical Palestinian movement Hamas.
