Security Alerts for Israel, Palestine and Gaza Lowered

Posted by:

Improving security situations in Israel, Palestine and the Gaza strip has prompted the Department of Foreign Affairs to lower the security alert level after several months of war.

DFA now declared alert level 1 or the precautionary phase for Israel and the West Bank, lowering it from restriction phase or alert level 2.

Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman Charles Jose said that the security situation in Israel and Palestine had improved since the implementation of ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. He also added that the security alert can’t be completely lifted in Israel because of external threat to security. And because of this, DFA advised Filipinos to take the necessary precautions needed.

Meanwhile, from alert level 4 or mandatory repatriation, Gaza strip is now in alert level 2 only, and will remain in the said level because of the humanitarian situation.

However, the decision of lifting the deployment ban in Israel and West Bank based on these alerts remains to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA.

With alert level 2 advisory over Yemen, the deployment of newly-hired Filipino workers is still suspended. It was also clarified that re-entry of those with existing contracts to their company or employer are allowed.
