After two Israelis were evacuated from the quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship docked in Japan, and taken to a hospital, it was decided that the remaining ten Israelis would be evacuated only at 6 pm Thursday (local Japan time).
They are expected to take off about three hours later.
The evacuation is expected to continue through Friday due to the large number of passengers.
