Sen. Gillibrand Urges State Dept. to Evacuate Americans from Israel


Senator Kirsten Gillibrand sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken urging the State Department to begin coordinating evacuation flights out of Israel for American citizens who want to return home to the United States.

Gillibrand’s office has been in touch with dozens of constituents whose loved ones have been unable to secure travel back home to the United States in the wake of Hamas’ attack on Israel. The letter highlighted the issue that is impacting travelers, namely that U.S. carriers have halted flights to Israel and regional carriers are offering limited options with an increasing number of cancellations.
