U.S. Warns About Travel to Jerusalem

The State Department has issued a new travel advisory warning American tourists not to go to East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The warning was issued after Monday’s riot by Arabs on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

American tourists were urged to carry their U.S. passports with them at all times and to be “vigilant when using public transportation or while traveling by car, and while parking in less frequented areas of the city.”

“Under all circumstances, Americans should avoid demonstrations, protest activities and other situations that have the potential to lead to violence,” the State Department said.
