Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held consultations on the situation in Nepal on Tuesday, saying, “Our top priority is to locate and extricate Israelis in distress and to help them return safely to Israel.”

Netanyahu said that Israel’s second objective was to help the Nepalese and it is for this reason it provided a field hospital that could treat 200 people a day.

“Israel is operating under two principles, that Israel must help its own and that it has a responsibility to offer humanitarian assistance to Nepal and other countries around the world,” Netanyahu said.
