Prime Minister and Finance Minister Srettha Thavisin has urged Thai citizens in Israel to consider returning to Thailand.

The Thai government has been closely monitoring the situation and facilitating the return of Thai nationals, with approximately 800 people returning daily. However, some citizens are hesitant to return due to delayed wage payments and increased wage to convince them to stay.



While the intensity of the conflict in Israel may have lessened, the overall tension has increased, with a possibility of the conflict spreading to neighboring countries. This is a cause for concern, and there are reports of a ground offensive within the next 2-3 days.

As a result, the Prime Minister advised Thai citizens to consider returning to Thailand, as an escalation of the conflict could make evacuation more difficult.



The Prime Minister has instructed the Ministry of Labor to take care of the returning Thai workers and provide them with additional incentives, potentially increasing their wages from 15,000 baht.

Agriculture Minister General Thamanat Prompow expressed concern for the future employment prospects of these workers, many of whom have previously worked in agriculture and possess advanced technological skills. The Ministry of Agriculture may have employment opportunities for these skilled laborers, which will be announced later.

The Prime Minister emphasized that the government has been using all available channels, including discussions with international leaders to help 19 Thais taken captive. He stressed that Thailand is not in conflict with any party involved in the situation and that the nation has incurred significant losses.

Efforts are underway, including high-level officials traveling to the region, but the details of these efforts are not being disclosed at this time. (TNA)
