The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine develops an alternative evacuation route for Ukrainians from Israel and the Gaza Strip, the Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Voloshyn told a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.

"We are working on an alternative escape route to the Israeli-Palestinian border through Jordan," he said. According to him, if the border with Egypt is closed during the beginning of the military operation, Ukrainians will be evacuated through this route.

"Most of the citizens of Ukraine in these areas are the women married to the Palestinians. Their husbands do not have Ukrainian citizenship, but they have property and housing there. Therefore, most of them do not want to evacuate. It is their right to wait out the conflict, but we will help anyone who wants to evacuate," Voloshyn said.He also said that this will be the sixth FM operation to evacuate Ukrainians over the past 2.5 years. Foreign Ministry spokesman reminded of similar operations in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Japan following the accident at the "Fukushima-1".

"We have started to send trained people. After the "Arab Spring", we have prepared the entire embassy to work in extreme conditions and possible evacuation in the Middle East," he informed.
