12 Thai national killed in Hamas attack, Bangkok says

Twelve Thai nationals have died in Israel following Hamas’s attack, Thai Foreign Ministry spokesperson Kanchana Patarachoke says.

Eleven others were taken hostage and eight were injured. The numbers, based on reports from workers and employers in the area, are still awaiting confirmation from Israeli authorities, Kanchana says.

Around 5,000 Thai workers are in the areas around the Gaza Strip, and some have been evacuated to safer areas, the spokesperson says, adding that Thailand’s air force is preparing planes for an evacuation whenever the situation allows.

Many Thais work on farms in Israel.
