Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Jerusalem, Continued Potential for Violence and Unrest in and Around Old City

Near East > Jerusalem

Based on continued tensions and the potential for clashes in the Old City, the restriction of U.S. government employees and their family members from entering the Old City is extended from now through Monday morning, July 17 at 9:00 am, without prior approval from the U.S. Consulate General.  We recommend that private U.S. citizens take into consideration these restrictions and the additional guidance contained in the Department of State’s travel warning for Israel, Jerusalem and the West Bank when making decisions regarding their travel in the Old City and in Jerusalem.
