The Philippine Embassies in Cairo, Tel Aviv, and Amman are ready to assist those who wish to leave Gaza. These Embassies continue to be in close contact with Filipinos in Gaza.
Alert Level 1 (Precautionary Phase) remains raised in the West Bank and in southern and central Israel. Filipinos in these areas are advised to take the necessary precautions.
The DFA continues to closely monitor developments in the Middle East.
