Israel mulling pulling all diplomats out of Ukraine — report

Israel’s Foreign Ministry will discuss possibly evacuating all diplomats from Ukraine, the Kan news outlet reports.

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid will huddle with ministry officials on the matter, after Prime Minister Naftali Bennett suggested the possibility of decamping for Poland during a meeting overnight, the network says.

Israel already moved its embassy from Kyiv to Lviv earlier this week ahead of the invasion.

The news comes after air raid sirens went off in Lviv earlier Friday amid expectations that Russian forces would push into western parts of the country.

Ministry director Alon Ushpiz earlier seemed to indicate on Twitter that Israel still had a role to play in the country helping citizens leave.
