US withdrawing forces, personnel from Israel as hostilities escalate with Palestine

Must read


The United States has withdrawn military and civilian personnel from Israel due to the recent uptick in violence between Palestinian factions and Tel Aviv, a Pentagon official confirmed Thursday.

It is believed that the US had sent more than 100 personnel in Israel ahead of a joint military exercise with Israel.

The Pentagon official said the forced evacuation was due to the uptick in fighting that has rocked the region since last week between Palestinian militants and Israeli forces. Fears grew over the lack of commercial flights out of Israel as several American and European airlines halted their flights into Israel.

The official said those evacuated from Israel returned to their bases in Germany. CNN’s Pentagon correspondent first reported that 120 US personnel had left Israel for Germany earlier Thursday.
