The US Embassy in Israel calls on American citizens who are seeking to leave to move quickly to access charter flights “while they are available.”

The embassy says Americans looking to leave should come to the airport tomorrow and “look for a table with a US flag,” noting that flights will not be to the US, and that people will not be able to choose their destinations.

Travelers cannot bring pets, and will have to first fill out the crisis intake form on its website before coming to the airport, it says.
