Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Congressman Henry Cuellar, Ph.D. (TX-28) released the following update on U.S. citizens in Israel amid the Israel/Hamas conflict:
“Today, the State Department announced it will arrange charter flights beginning tomorrow, Friday, October 13, to evacuate U.S. citizens from Israel. I have been in close, personal contact with TX-28 residents who have been stuck in Israel amid the ongoing war. As I mentioned yesterday, I have been working hard to get our folks back home. Help is on the way, and I will not rest until they are safe and sound,” said Dr. Cuellar. “I will continue to monitor the situation in Israel closely. For more information, please use these Israel crisis response resources. If you’re in need of assistance, contact my Laredo district office at (956) 725-0639 and ask to speak with Sylvia Segovia, or email Ms. Segovia at Sylvia.Segovia@mail.house.gov.”
Individuals needing departure assistance from Israel should fill out the State Department’s Crisis Intake Form for more information.
