Police clashed with protesters in Tel-Aviv's Jaffa area during the evening of Sunday, July 19. Demonstrators reportedly set fire to trash cans and threw objects at police during unrest linked to plans to build a homeless shelter over the site of the Maqbarat al-Is'aaf Muslim cemetery.
Further protests and a heightened security presence in the area are to be expected in the near term.
Individuals in Tel Aviv are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions near protest sites, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
