Forty-one people from Aguascalientes, 22 from Campeche, four from Tamaulipas and four from San Luis Potosí are stranded in Israel, for which reason they asked the Mexican embassy in that nation for support to return to the country, due to the armed conflict with Palestine.
The government of Aguascalientes, headed by PAN member Teresa Jiménez, announced that 41 natives of that entity began an excursion in Turkey last October 3 and from there began a tour of Jordan and Israel.
He indicated that at the moment they are in Nazareth, a locality for now outside the war zone.
The Hydrocalida state administration said that it is already in communication with the Foreign Ministry, and the process to support the return of the nationals has begun, so that all of them return safe and sound. He indicated that at the moment, all the tourists from Aguascalientes are in good condition.
Like the travelers from Aguascalientes, 22 people from Campeche, among them the priest Efrain Rosales, are in a hotel in Jerusalem, being sheltered while waiting for plane tickets to return to Mexico, after the armed actions prevented their trip to the Middle East.
The government of Campeche, headed by Layda Sansores, has only affirmed that it is keeping an eye on them, and asked citizens to pray for them.
In turn, the bishop of the Diocese of Campeche, José Francisco González, stressed that “now the airspace is not open, until Israel returns to put order in the area and civilian airplanes can be put back to fly”.
Meanwhile, four citizens from Tamaulipas and another four from San Luis Potosí are stranded at the Tel Aviv airport, and assured that no authority has contacted them.
