Getting Out of Dodge

Israel is removing embassy staff and families from Uzbekistan too.

Staff at the Israeli embassy in Uzbekistan and their families have been instructed to leave the country owing to heightened security concerns, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev told The Associated Press Friday. He gave no further details.

Haaretz said only ambassador Ami Mel and security guards were left on station in the capital, Tashkent.

The stories I’ve seen about the US embassy all say that some staff and all families are allowed to leave, but I certainly trust the information I’ve posted here that says families must leave.

WaPo, Reuters, and CNN all have stories up about the embassies.
