Israel News Alert

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas annuls all agreements with the US and Israel on May 19; associated protests and unrest possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/21/2020, 12:00 AM until 5/30/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Jerusalem). COUNTRY/REGION West Bank, West Bank, West Bank


On Tuesday, May 19, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas declared an end to all agreements signed with the United States and Israel, including those on security cooperation. The statement comes as the Israeli government prepares to authorize the annexation of parts of the West Bank. Similar Palestinian statements regarding the rejection of previous agreements have been made in recent months, with little to no effect. Protests and unrest throughout the Palestinian territories and Israel are possible in the medium term as the annexation process continues.

A heightened Israeli security presence throughout the Palestinian territories, and to a lesser extent within Israel, is to be expected in the medium term.  


Individuals in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments related to the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, 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.
