Under this phase, Filipinos are instructed to restrict non-essential movements, avoid open spaces, and prepare for evacuation due to escalating armed hostilities.

“Alert Level 2 is issued when there are real threats to the life, security, and property of Filipinos arising from internal disturbance, instability, and external threats,” a DFA statement said.

There are 36,000 Filipinos in Israel, working mostly as caregivers or household helpers.

Over in Palestinian-controlled Gaza, alert level 4 or mandatory repatriation is being enforced for the remaining 100 Filipinos there, comprised of women and children.

“The DFA continues to closely monitor developments in the Israel-Hamas conflict,” the DFA said. PNA
