Greece concludes repatriation of Greeks, EU and third-countries citizens from Israel

Greece has successfully repatriated its citizens from Israel and also evacuated EU and third-counties citizens, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday morning. The repatriation procedures were done via the Greek Embassy in Tel Aviv and the Consulate in Jerusalem.

“On Monday, October 9, the initial group of 90 Greek visitors returned, followed by another 68 on Tuesday, October 10. Finally, on Thursday, October 12, 72 Greek residents in Israel who expressed a desire for repatriation were brought back,” the ministry noted.

It added that these flights also facilitated the return of citizens from various European and third countries. Specifically, they ensured the repatriation of individuals from Austria, Germany, Israel, Albania, Belgium, North Macedonia, Bulgaria, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Ukraine, and Panama.

The Foreign Ministry stressed that Greece was among the first nations to finalize the repatriations amid the brutal escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas.
