Israel’s Ministry of Tourism opened an emergency virtual information center to field questions from the roughly 90,000 tourists currently in the country.
The announcement came amid ongoing nationwide strikes by the Histadrut, Israel’s national labor union. Ben-Gurion International Airport closed on Monday, leaving many people stranded.
The information center will be open at all times and staffed by English-speaking and Hebrew-speaking ministry employees.
The staff is also available via phone, email, Facebook and WhatsApp.
