Event

Military operations were reported in West Bank as of Friday afternoon (local time), August 9, as Israeli security services search for suspects in connection with the August 8 murder of an off-duty Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldier. Operations are focused on Hebron, where officials believe the suspects may be in hiding, although troops have reportedly been deployed throughout the West Bank.

A heightened security presence is to be expected in the area as investigations continue. Localized transportation disruptions, including road closures, are also possible over the near term. Avoid the area.

Advice

Individuals in the area are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments. 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.
