Ambassador Ly Duc Trung said that the Vietnamese community in Israel is relatively small, with about 500 long-term residents and around 200 working or studying short-term.

He said the current situation is stable, but there must always be preparations for the worst situation if the conflict spreads out of control. 

The ambassador said as foreign airlines have stopped operating in Israel, one of the plans being prepared by the embassy is to help Vietnamese people evacuate by road across the Jordan border to a safe area.

According to the diplomat, ensuring uninterrupted information connection is one of the priority tasks for the embassy since the first days of the conflict.
