The Jewish festival of Hanukkah (Festival of Lights) will be celebrated throughout Israel starting at sundown (local time) on Sunday, December 2, through the evening of Monday, December 10. Heightened security measures are anticipated throughout the country during the festival, particularly around religious sites. Tensions remain high between Israel and the Palestinian Territories amid a ceasefire along the Gaza Strip.
Israeli authorities typically increase security measures during major Jewish holidays due to the threat of terrorist attacks.
Individuals in Israel are advised to remain vigilant, report any suspicious objects or behavior to the police, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
