Event

On Monday, April 1, unnamed Israeli defense officials cautioned that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) group was witnessed carrying out "suspicious activities" near the Israeli-Gazan border in recent days, consistent with planning a significant terror attack on the border. The alleged planned attack is reportedly aimed at disrupting ongoing ceasefire talks between Israeli and Hamas representatives. Senior PIJ members have denied planning an attack. 

Cross-border militant attacks targeting Israel from the Gaza Strip are possible over the coming days.

Advice

Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and seek immediate shelter in the event of a cross-border attack from the Gaza Strip.

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.
