First Group of Over 60 Indian Workers Head to Israel, Says Ambassador

New Delhi, 3rd April. 
The Israeli ambassador to India, Naor Gilon, announced on Tuesday that the first group of over 60 Indian construction workers is on their way to Israel.

In a social media post, he expressed hope that these workers would serve as representatives of the strong people-to-people relationship between the two countries.

Gilon mentioned that the workers are traveling to Israel as part of a government-to-government agreement and praised India’s National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) for their role in making this possible.

Today, we bid farewell to the initial group of 60+ Indian construction workers heading to Israel under the G2G agreement. This achievement is the result of the hard work of many, including @NSDCINDIA, Gilon stated.

He added, “I am confident that these workers will promote the excellent relations between India and Israel.”

Although there has been no official announcement regarding a finalized government-to-government agreement for the employment of Indian workers in Israel, reports emerged after the Israel-Hamas conflict suggesting that the Israeli construction industry is considering hiring 100,000 Indian workers to replace the 90,000 Palestinians.

Last month, India emphasized its focus on ensuring the safety and security of all its citizens in Israel following the tragic death of an Indian individual in a missile attack reportedly carried out by Hezbollah.

“We have more than 18,000 caregivers and other professionals in Israel. Their safety and security are our top priorities,” stated External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal on March 8.
