Risk Summary

The travel security environment is generally benign, except at times of heightened Israeli-Palestinian tensions, which can fuel incidents such as knife or car-ramming attacks or, more rarely, shootings. Jerusalem has been the most affected city. Most of these attacks target security force personnel (police, border police, Israel Defense Forces), but they can pose incidental risks to bystanders. Other concerns include the risk of petty crime and communal unrest, especially in Jerusalem. The border areas with Egypt, Syria and Lebanon are unstable, with the risk of rocket fire or militant cross-border infiltration. However, the government maintains a robust security infrastructure to mitigate these risks

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
