In a significant development, the first batch of Indian nationals, stranded in Israel amidst the ongoing conflict, landed in New Delhi as part of ‘Operation Ajay’. A total of 212 individuals from Israel arrived at the Delhi airport, where they were welcomed by Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar. He reassured the passengers of India’s unwavering commitment to their safety and Prime Minister Modi’s determination to protect them.

Chandrasekhar expressed gratitude towards External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar, the Ministry’s team, and the Air India flight crew for facilitating this return. One of the returning Indians expressed gratitude towards the Indian government, especially Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for their efforts in bringing them back. The returnees hope for peace to be restored soon, enabling them to resume their work at the earliest.

Operation Ajay, initiated by Prime Minister Modi, aims to repatriate approximately 18,000 Indians currently in Israel. The MEA established a 24-hour control room to monitor the situation and offer necessary information and assistance to Indian citizens. Registration for those wishing to return began on Thursday. The Indian embassy in Israel is actively providing support to Indian companies and has established a helpline for citizens in need of assistance.
