Israeli forces carried out raids in several towns and cities in the West Bank on Monday, December 10, and Tuesday, December 11. On Monday night (local time), Israeli soldiers raided the offices of the Palestinian News & Info Agency in Ramallah and fired tear gas, wounding several people. Additionally, Israeli forces reportedly arrested at least 28 people on Tuesday; most of those detained were from the villages of Tell and Urif, near Nablus, as well as Tubas, Tulkarem, and Hebron. Further Israeli raids and arrests of Palestinians are possible in the West Bank over the coming days and weeks.
Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation. Due to the underlying terrorist threat, travelers in Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip are advised to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
