Operation Ajay: 2nd Flight Carries 235 Indian, Lands Safely in Delhi

In the midst of the escalating Israel-Hamas war, 'Operation Ajay' continued its mission to repatriate Indian nationals from Israel, as the second flight carrying 235 individuals touched down at Delhi Airport on Saturday. The operation, initiated by India, aims to ensure the safe return of its citizens who found themselves caught up in the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group, Hamas.

Friday saw the successful evacuation of the second batch of 235 Indian nationals, which notably included two infants. The arrivals were greeted at the airport by MoS MEA, Rajkumar Ranjan Singh, who expressed India's unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of its citizens abroad.

'Operation Ajay' was set into motion on Thursday, responding to the brazen attacks by Hamas militants on Israeli towns that occurred on the 7th of October. The second flight, scheduled to depart at 11:02 pm local time, is part of a larger evacuation effort, which will continue into the coming days.

The Indian Embassy, cognizant of the urgency of the situation, promptly reached out to registered Indian citizens for the special flight. Messages to other registered individuals will follow, ensuring that more repatriation flights are on the horizon. The initial charter flight departed from Ben Gurion Airport late Thursday evening, carrying 211 adults and an infant, and arrived in Delhi on Friday morning. Ben Gurion International Airport, serving as the primary international gateway to Israel, is located on the northern outskirts of Lod.

To facilitate their safe return, all Indian nationals wishing to come back to India have been requested to register on the mission's database. The Indian government is shouldering the financial responsibility for their repatriation.

The Indian embassy in Israel is extending support to Indian companies and citizens in need by establishing a dedicated helpline. Among the 18,000 Indian nationals in Israel, there is a diverse community encompassing caregivers, students, IT professionals, and diamond traders.
