Protesters denouncing the Palestinian Authority's perceived inability to manage the social security system and demanding the repeal of the social security law are expected to gather daily at Al-Manara Square at 18:00 (local time) in Ramallah (West Bank) through Saturday, December 1. Thousands of people reportedly gathered to protest on Thursday, November 29; a similarly large demonstration is to be expected on Friday, November 30. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be anticipated near the demonstration site.
Individuals in Ramallah are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
