Programmable SMS Geo Permissions - Israel and Palestine Prefix Update

Twilio is making changes to Geo-Permissions in the Twilio Console to better differentiate traffic being sent to both Israel and Palestine. Palestine, which previously was only +970 will now include Palestinian networks operating with +972 prefixes. If you enabled geo permissions for Israel and/or Palestine, then we have updated your selection based on the corrected prefixes.  Israel will no longer send traffic to +97256 and +97259 since these two prefixes are associated with Palestinian Jawwal and Wataniya cellular communication company.

If needed, you can enable or disable SMS Geo Permissions to any country at any time in Twilio Console by following the steps in this Support Article.
