Governors told to push families to bring Thai workers back from Israel


DEPUTY Prime Minister-cum-Interior Minister Anutin Charnvirakul tonight (Oct. 28) sent an urgent Line message to all governors across the nation to coordinate with families of Thai workers in Israel to persuade them to return home immediately, TV Channel 7 said.

This step came after Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin had earlier in the day issued an urgent message via X, formerly Twitter, that as Israeli forces have intensified their ground operation in Gaza and the war is likely expanding Thais in Israel should change their minds and return home immediately.

Anutin said in his message that the government is facilitating the workers’ return and expediting the issuance of relief measures to fully ease their burdens.

“The government is very concerned about every single worker and wants everyone to be safe,” he said.

As the ground operation  may lead to Thai workers being killed the government appealed to them to opt to return to Thailand.
