Strike shuts Israeli embassies world over

Oct 30, 2019 13:42 IST

A strike on Wednesday by Israeli diplomats and military attaches has shut down all Israeli embassies and consulates around the world. The strike has been called over a long-simmering dispute with the Finance Ministry over expense stipends paid to envoys. The closures were likely to harm Israelis traveling abroad and in need of consular assistance for issues like lost passports or medical emergencies. The Treasury has been pushing to change the way it reimburses the costs and tax the stipends, which would significantly hit the diplomats.
