Israel has approved the incorporation of up to 6.400 foreign workers in the commerce, infrastructure and services sectors to replace the Palestinian workforce, whose work permits it annulled after the outbreak of war in Gaza, on October 7, 2023, according to a statement from the Israeli Prime Minister's Office today.

The Israeli offensive has had a negative impact on the country's economy due to the shortage of workers in some sectors such as construction, agriculture and commerce where the majority of them were Palestinians.

More than 5.000 Palestinians worked before the start of the ground invasion in the Strip alone in Israel's service and business sectors.

“There will be no more workers Palestinians in Israel,” the president said last November.

Since then, the Hebrew Executive signed some bilateral agreements with countries such as India or Thailand to make up for this lack of labor since it needs at least 92.000 workers.

The truth is that the arrival of migrants from Southeast Asia to Israel was already common before the war.

Last April, a first group of seventy Indian workers arrived in Israel, where they receive a salary of about 1.600 dollars a month compared to the 300 dollars they receive in India.

Some of the Thai workers working in communities bordering Gaza were kidnapped by Hamas militants on October 7.
