The national defence department says the potential for escalating hostilities in the region has led Global Affairs Canada to request support from the military.

The Canadian military has dispatched a group of elite soldiers to Israel to evacuate Canadian citizens en masse if deemed necessary, says the Department of National Defence (DND).

“In support of Global Affairs Canada, CAF personnel from Canadian Special Operations Forces Command are assisting the Canadian embassy in Israel with contingency planning,” a DND spokesperson told The Epoch Times in an email statement.

DND says the potential for escalating hostilities in the region, including at the Israel-Lebanon border, has led Global Affairs Canada (GAC) to request support from the military.
