“As part of the gradual return of Georgian citizens to their homeland, a Tel Aviv-Tbilisi flight was carried out yesterday, as a result of which 151 people arrived in Georgia. A total of 6,747 people returned to Georgia by April 19 with special flights, land and sea,” the Georgian Foreign Ministry stated.
