India's Operation Kaveri: Evacuation of Over 3,800 People Successfully Completed from Sudan



The Indian embassy in Saudi Arabia has announced the successful completion of Operation Kaveri, which has resulted in the evacuation of 3,862 individuals from conflict-ridden Sudan. The closure of the school-based transit facility in Jeddah, which was established to provide comfort and plan the onward movement of evacuees to India, was also announced. This facility had hosted over 3,500 people during the operation.


External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar announced that 47 stranded passengers had been brought back to India via an Indian Air Force (IAF) C130 J flight. He thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his unwavering commitment to the safety and security of Indians abroad. Jaishankar also acknowledged the operation's complexity, which involved moving people from various locations in Sudan to Port Sudan under precarious security circumstances.


Jaishankar expressed his gratitude to Saudi Arabia for hosting the evacuees and facilitating the process. He also thanked Chad, Egypt, France, South Sudan, the UAE, the UK, the USA, and the UN for their support during the operation. The EAM also acknowledged the contribution of the Embassy in Khartoum and Team India stationed in Saudi Arabia and MEA Rapid Response Cell coordinating in India.



The operation involved 17 Indian Airforce flights and 5 Indian Navy Ship sorties, and 86 nationals were evacuated through countries bordering Sudan. The flight from Wadi Sayyidna, which was executed at great risk, was also recognised for its contribution to the operation. From Jeddah, the airforce and commercial flights brought people safely back to India.


Jaishankar tweeted his appreciation for the spirit, perseverance, and courage of all those involved in #OperationKaveri.
