Israel and the Palestinian Territories

Ongoing demonstrations can escalate, affecting transportation and other services. A ceasefire was announced on 13 May following days of conflict between Israeli Defense Forces and militant groups in Gaza. The situation remains unpredictable and rocket attacks may continue. Tensions in the West Bank remain high and could escalate with little or no warning. Be alert. Monitor media and public safety information updates through the National Emergency Portal (accessible in Israel only). Check with your travel provider before travelling. See ‘Safety’.

We advise:

Exercise a high degree of caution in Israel and the Palestinian Territories overall due to civil unrest and the threat of terrorist attack, rocket fire and military confrontation.
