Palestinian political party Fatah calls for protest marches and demonstrations from Monday, June 24, to Wednesday, June 26. The protests are being held over a planned US-led conference in Bahrain to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and to promote foreign investment in Palestine. Public demonstrations are likely across the West Bank and Gaza Strip and protest sites may include Al-Manarah Square in Ramallah and near the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. Heightened security measures, including increased security personnel deployment, checkpoints, and border closures, are possible. Clashes between protesters, security forces, and militant groups, including the use of tear gas, live ammunition, and rockets, cannot be ruled out.
The US is hosting a "Peace to Prosperity" conference in Manama (Bahrain) to promote foreign investment in Palestine.
Individuals in or near the West Bank or Gaza Strip are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate heightened security measures, including border closures and increased deployment of security personnel.
