The violence in Israel has affected Thais living there, with one injured in the conflict, Foreign Ministry spokesman Tanee Sangrat said on Wednesday.

The Thai embassy in Tel Aviv reported that clashes between Palestinians and Israeli authorities have escalated and tensions are expected to continue, he said.

Thais living in Israel are advised to follow the situation closely and avoid travelling to protest sites, Mr Tanee said, adding that a report had emerged of a Thai being injured in the violence. The embassy is reported to be taking care of the matter.

On Tuesday, the embassy arranged for a flight to bring 222 Thais back to the kingdom.

All underwent Covid-testing 72 hours before their journey and the results were all negative. Upon arriving in Thailand, they will be quarantined for 14 days, he said.
