The Biden administration has informed Israel that Russia could invade Ukraine in the next few days, Hebrew media reports say.

According to the Haaretz daily, the US assessment is that the Russian invasion may come as early as Tuesday. The Ynet news site reports Israel believes it has until Wednesday to evacuate Israelis from Ukraine, an assessment it says is partly based on regular briefings from the United States.

Both outlets say Prime Minister Naftali Bennett called to evacuate as many Israelis as possible from Ukraine in the coming days.
