The conflict in the Gaza Strip has significantly impacted Israel’s tourism industry, which was just starting to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 06.02.2024

Prior to Operation Iron Swords, the country was receiving over 300,000 foreign visitors per month. However, in November 2023, the number of visitors dropped to a record low of 39,000. As the war began, most airlines cancelled flights to Tel Aviv, causing severe damage to the country’s economy. Prior to the pandemic, tourism contributed 2.6% to Israel’s GDP. Currently, these figures have significantly decreased.
