Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has a message for the estimated Israelis in Ukraine: “Come home.”
Bennett urged Israelis on Sunday to leave the nation ahead of a possible imminent attack from Russia that has been predicted by intelligence.
“Don’t take unnecessary risks. Don’t wait till you badly want to come home but it has become impossible. Take responsibility for your lives. Leave Ukraine as fast as possible and come home,” he said at a cabinet meeting, noting that there may now be a “very small window” in which they can leave.
“Come back to Israel before things get complicated,” Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid added. “We are still hoping that the crisis is solved through diplomatic means, but we also have a responsibility as a country toward Israeli citizens there, as well as toward the Jews.”
Obviously, the U.S. is not the only nation taking Russia’s threatening behavior very seriously.
