Israel's embassy in Addis Ababa, as well as the Jewish Agency, are working on plans to fly a group of Israelis holed up in a building in Gondar out of the city, marred overnight by ethnic tensions that took some 10 lives on Tuesday.
Some 6,000 Jews live in Gondar, and there is currently a delegation of 23 Jewish agency emissaries there. According to a Foreign Ministry spokesman, they are currently in a secure and guarded building.
In addition there are an undetermined number of Israeli tourists believed to be in the region.
