As the publication explains, the decision comes after the Union of Trade Unions in Israel decided to go ahead with a strike that affects Israeli embassies internationally.
"Due to the decision of the Union of Trade Unions in Israel - for which all Israeli embassies are instructed to stop work and go on strike - the Embassy will be closed today until further notice".
The strike is in protest against judicial reform affirmed by the Israeli executive, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, which intends to limit the powers of the Supreme Court of the country.
