The US Department of State strongly urges refraining from travel to the Gaza Strip by any means, including via sea. The government of Israel has announced its intention to seek 10-year travel bans to Israel for anyone participating in an attempt to enter Gaza by sea.

Within the West Bank, Palestinian Authority security forces are deployed in all major cities and certain other areas. As a result, in recent years violence has decreased markedly. Demonstrations and violent incidents still can occur, and vehicles on West Bank roads have been the target of rocks, Molotov cocktails and gunfire.

Remain vigilant throughout Jerusalem and exercise caution at religious sites on holy days, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. All demonstrations should be avoided.
