Israel travel advice

A number of people were injured in an attack on pedestrians near the Jerusalem Light Rail Shimon Ha’Tzadik station on 6 March. There is an ongoing risk of security incidents on public transport in East Jerusalem, particularly on the Light Rail. You should avoid using public transport in Jerusalem.

There is an ongoing risk of security incidents on public transport in Tel Aviv. There have been attacks on buses in the Greater Tel Aviv area in recent months, including a knife attack on 21 January when 12 people were wounded. Take extra care and be vigilant when using public transport, in particular public buses in the greater Tel Aviv area. You may wish to consider using other forms of transport.

Take care near the Old City and in East Jerusalem. There are frequent demonstrations, especially after Friday prayers. Some protests lead to violent clashes. Stay alert at all times in and leave the area if there is tension or unrest.
