France Prepares For An Evacuation Of Its Nationals Living In Israel.

JERUSALEM – France has prepared a contingency plan to evacuate its citizens from Israel, La Tribune has learned.

According to diplomatic sources, a plan to evacuate the 200,000 French nationals living in Israel has been drafted to prepare for the enventuality of conflict between Iran and Israel. The objective, says the French financial newspaper, is not to be caught off guard should a barrage of missiles equipped with conventional or non-conventional weapons be fired by Iran or Hezbollah on Israeli territory.

One of the scenarios prepared by French diplomats calls for the evacuation of French citizens using an armada of small boats who would then join French warships off the port of Jaffa, near Tel Aviv. A few dozen Frenchmen and women have been designated as coordinators to relay information to Israel’s French community.
