UK sets Wednesday deadline for Israel evacuation flight bookings

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain said on Tuesday any of its citizens wishing to leave Israel on a government-arranged flight should make a booking before 0900 GMT on Wednesday, an update on the foreign office’s travel advice website said.

Britain said more than 900 people had been transported home from Israel on the government-organised flights since they started last week.
