In light of the escalating conflict in Israel between security forces and the Palestinian group Hamas, New Delhi is on high alert for potential protests, according to the police. The Delhi Police have deployed a substantial presence on the streets, particularly during Friday prayers, and have increased security measures at Jewish religious establishments and the Israeli Embassy, NDTV reported

This heightened state of alert mirrors actions taken by several other countries, including the US, UK, France, and Germany, which have also bolstered security around potential Jewish targets and pro-Palestinian protesters in response to the rising violence in Israel.

In a significant move, France banned all pro-Palestinian demonstrations in the interest of public order following the recent attack on Israel by Hamas. Critics argue that this ban raises concerns about freedom of speech and assembly.

The ongoing conflict has taken a devastating toll, with more than 1,500 people killed in Gaza as Israel responded forcefully to Hamas's surprise land-sea-air attack, which claimed the lives of 1,300 Israelis. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared a 'state of war' and pledged to bring Gaza to ruins in response to the Hamas onslaught.

Adding a humanitarian dimension to the situation, Indian nationals stranded in Israel due to the ongoing war have been evacuated on the first flight as part of Operation Ajay, landing in New Delhi today.
