The number of victims among Ukrainian citizens in Israel has risen to seven, with nine citizens sustaining injuries of varying degrees of severity. This information was provided by Oleg Nikolenko, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

"The number of Ukrainian casualties in Israel has increased to seven individuals. Consuls have identified their personal information, maintain communication with their relatives, and are taking measures for the repatriation of the bodies. Nine citizens have sustained injuries of varying degrees of severity. Another nine Ukrainians are considered missing," Nikolenko wrote on Facebook.

He emphasized that the Ukrainian Embassy is collaborating with Israeli security services in the context of searching for the missing individuals.

Diplomats are preparing for the first evacuation flight for Ukrainian citizens from the territory of Israel to Romania on Saturday, October 14th. "Over a thousand Ukrainian citizens have sought assistance in leaving Israel due to canceled flights. Diplomats are preparing for the first evacuation flight to Romania on Saturday, October 14th. We are working on the organization of additional evacuation flights," wrote Oleg Nikolenko on Facebook.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted that details will be sent to the citizens who have provided their information to the Ukrainian Embassy in Tel Aviv. Additionally, nearly 200 Ukrainians have expressed a desire to be evacuated from the Gaza Strip, but due to the lack of security, departure is currently not possible.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ukrainian Embassies in Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and other relevant Ukrainian agencies are making active efforts to extract our people as quickly as possible," emphasized Nikolenko.
