The Vietnamese citizens in Israel need to return to Vietnam or travel to a third country soon amid the escalating Israel-Hamas conflict, the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Sunday.

The Vietnamese in Israel should update the latest news from local authorities as well as travel advisories from the ministry to timely take security measures.

Those Vietnamese citizens in need of assistance can contact the Vietnamese Embassy in Israel via phone numbers 972-50-818-6116, +972-52-727-4248, and +972-50-994-0889, or the embassy’s citizen protection hotline at +84 981 84 84 84 and +84 965 41 11 18, or via baohocongdan@gmail.com.

The Vietnamese community in Israel reaches some 500. They mainly live in major cities.

The conflict between the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas and Israel has showed no signs of abating.

After Israeli troops entered the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, clashes between both sides broke out and left multiple people injured.

The U.S., an ally of Israel, recently deployed two aircraft carrier strike groups to the eastern Mediterranean “to deter hostile actions against Israel or any efforts toward widening this war following Hamas's attack on Israel,” U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement on Saturday.

As of Sunday morning, more than 2,300 Palestinians were killed and over 9,700 others were injured since the conflict began on October 7, according to the Gaza’s health ministry.

In his letter sent to the Vietnamese citizens in Israel on Thursday, Vietnamese Ambassador to Israel Ly Duc Trung called on the Vietnamese community to jointly set up community working groups in their areas and send the information of the group leaders to the embassy to timely cope with the latest developments of the conflict.

There are four major international agricultural training centers in Israel that cooperate with Vietnam to provide training for Vietnamese trainees, including Agrostudies, Sderot Negev, Ramat Negev, and AICAT.

Around 100 Vietnamese trainees are studying at Agrostudies, with 15 of them living near the Israeli town of Sderot, which is at high risk of clashes.

With the support of the Vietnamese Embassy and community, these trainees were divided into small groups and moved to the Israeli city of Malakhi, some 40km away from the Gaza Strip, to ensure their safety.
