AZOUR, Israel, Oct. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Ituran Location and Control Ltd. (Nasdaq: ITRN) today addressed the status of the Company's ongoing activity in Israel, against the background of the terrorist attack by Hamas on October 7 against unarmed civilians in the south of the country and the subsequent declaration of war by the Israeli government.
Ituran's management affirms that the Company has not seen any impact to its ongoing operations in Israel or elsewhere, and continues to make any adjustments to ensure continuity, as maybe needed. Furthermore, its headquarters are in the center of the country, just outside of Tel Aviv and not near any borders.
Eyal Sheratzky, CEO of Ituran, "The Ituran family is absolutely horrified by the barbaric attacks against ordinary citizens - which directly led to the declaration of war by Israel. All our employees have been affected in a very personal way, and the small size of our country is such that everyone knows a family that has either had a son or daughter murdered or kidnapped by Hamas. We pray for the victims as well as their families, friends and loved ones. I stress that we are resilient people, and unfortunately have much experience in working and overcoming challenging times."
"At the same time, we wish to reaffirm to our employees, partners and shareholders that our operations have not been impacted in Israel, or anywhere else in the world, despite our personal grieving. Naturally, the safety of our employees remains our highest priority. While hostilities have not taken place near our headquarters and it remains a safe environment, the vast majority of our employees are able to work remotely from their homes. Finally, I would like to thank all those that have reached out to express their support and best wishes. "
