The US Embassy has advised US citizens residing in or considering travel to Judea and Samaria and the Gaza Strip “to maintain a high level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.”

The announcement on Thursday continued, “Violence can occur with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, government checkpoints, markets and shopping facilities or government facilities,” the Embassy said.

“US citizens should carefully consider risks to their personal safety and security when considering visits to sites and events that are potential targets.”

The alert issued by the Embassy did not give a specific reason for its travel warning, but is a reminder for “Watchmen on the walls” to remain prayerful amid the current situation in Israel.

There have been several attacks in recent weeks targeting Israel citizens and the Palestinian Authority recently announced it was cancelling all agreements with the U.S. and Israel.
