Israel Post has proposed to the Banks Association that consumers be allowed to withdraw cash at its 700 branches during times of emergency. By getting permission from one's bank over the telephone, customers without Israel Post bank accounts, would just need to present their ID to withdraw the cash, if the proposal is accepted. Customers whose branches are closed due to the security situation would be able to call their bank's customer service for approval. Israel Post said it has kept all its branches open through the current conflict, including in the North.
