The backdrop of this operation is the Israel-Hamas conflict, which has left approximately 18,000 Indians residing in Israel facing challenging circumstances. India is not the only nation dealing with this crisis; citizens from various countries have been stranded in Israel, with reports of casualties and hostage situations involving the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

The Ministry of External Affairs assured the Indian public that there have been no reported Indian casualties thus far, but the situation remains a matter of concern. The ministry has issued advisories, urging Indian citizens to follow their guidance to stay safe and well-informed.

To provide further assistance, the Indian embassy in Israel has been actively supporting Indian companies and has established a helpline for Indian citizens in need of assistance. Additionally, the Ministry of External Affairs has set up a 24-hour control room to closely monitor the escalating conflict, ensuring a rapid response and the dissemination of vital information and assistance to those in need. Operation Ajay is a testament to the Indian government's unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of its citizens, even in times of international turmoil.
