The Mexican Foreign Ministry offers consular protection and assistance for Mexicans living in Israel and their family members in the country, amid the announcement of the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahuin a “long and difficult war” waged by the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas.
For this, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs offers through various dissemination channels the numbers of the service in Israel and from abroad.
“To the Mexican community in Israel! Note the details of the Mexican Embassy in Israel if you need consular assistance or protection,” read their account on the social network X (formerly Twitter).
In addition, he reported that the “embassy remains attentive to the development of events (in Israel).”
This Saturday, Hamas militants and other extremist Palestinian militias surprisingly attacked the territory of Israel, causing the death of 300 Israelis and 232 Palestinians so far.
The aggression of Hamas from the Gaza Strip against Israel and the military response ordered by the Government of Benjamin Netanyahu, which declared a “state of war”, left a provisional number of more than 500 dead (over of 300 in Israel and at least 232 in the Palestinian territories).
The death toll may increase in the coming hours, due to the seriousness of some of the wounded on both sides.
