KATHMANDU: The Nepal government is orchestrating the safe return of Nepali students who have faced hardship as a result of the recent attack by the Palestinian militant group, Hamas, in Israel.

Foreign Minister NP Saud, along with a Nepal Airlines plane, departed for Israel last night to facilitate the evacuation of Nepali students.

The plane, transporting the affected students, is expected to touch down at Tribhuvan International Airport at 8:20 pm today.

The first phase of the evacuation will include 254 students.

It should be noted that 10 Nepali students who had been to Israel under the ‘Learn and Earn’ program were killed in the terrorist attack at Kibbutz Alumim in the southern area of Israel on October 7.

Similarly, a search operation for Bipin Joshi, the missing Nepali in the incident, is underway.

The Nepali Embassy in Israel stated that they were searching for missing Joshi in various hospitals through a student who was living with Bipin who was rescued safely after the attack.
