'Operation Ajay' is an ongoing Indian operation to evacuate citizens caught up in Israel amid the raging conflict with the terrorist organisation Hamas.

Earlier, the fifth flight carrying 286 Indian nationals, including 18 Nepalese citizens, arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday late night.

So far, about 1,200 passengers, including 18 Nepalese citizens, have been flown back safely from Israel under 'Operation Ajay' and more flights could be sent as per the requirements, the Ministry of External Affairs informed earlier.

MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said the central government was assessing the situation in Israel amid the ongoing war with Hamas.

He refuted any reports of Indian casualties in Gaza, adding, however, that one Indian national was injured in the attacks.

The MEA spokesperson stated further that around four Indian nationals are in Gaza while another 12-13 are in West Bank.

"There are around four Indian nationals in Gaza...we don't have exact numbers and are coordinating. There are 12-13 Indian nationals in the West Bank...It's a little tough to get out from Gaza. There are some reports that some have already got out of there, but we will wait for confirmation," he said.

The Indian nationals applauded the ongoing operation to repatriate citizens caught up in the conflict, saying there was support from the Indian embassy and the evacuation process was "nice and quick".

Following the Hamas attacks on Israel, the Indian embassy issued an advisory requesting citizens to be cautious and register their names with the consulate.
