Q: Who where the Bani Israaeel during the time of Nabi Moosa (alaihis salaam) and where are they today?
A: The general understanding is that the Bani Israaeel are the Jews i.e. the original Jews who can trace their origins to Hadhrat Moosa and Yaqoob (alaihimas salaam).
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
