“The situation remains tense, with a state of war prevailing in the north and ongoing military operations in the south. Although the initial panic among our citizens in Israel has subsided, there are still fewer people expressing a desire to leave, and contact with the embassy has decreased,” stated Lasha Zhvania, the Georgian Ambassador to Israel.
The ambassador reported that normal activities have resumed in the central part of Israel, particularly in Tel Aviv and its surrounding areas. Schools and kindergartens have reopened, prioritizing buildings equipped with shelters for children during air raids. However, the air warnings persist, and the overall situation remains tense, contributing to psychological stress.
“I advise those experiencing stress to consider returning to their homeland for a more peaceful environment. This conflict is expected to be prolonged; this process will not end in two or three months. This is not a special operation; this is a war declared by the State of Israel,” Ambassador Zhvania said.
Zhvania highlighted the importance of maintaining direct flights between Tel Aviv and Tbilisi, as well as Tel Aviv and Batumi. “The resumption of Airzena flights will depend on the renewal of insurance by the company. Until then, travelers may explore alternatives,” he added.
