Comprehensive UK government advisory for travel in Israel

Following the attack in central Tel Aviv, British citizens should be vigilant and obey security forces, especially when using public transport, the new British government advisory warns Saturday. Vigilance is also advised while driving along Route 443 (between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem), and Route 60 north of Jerusalem, to avoid stones and Molotov cocktails. Motorists should not stop between the Maccabim check point and Jerusalem.

In Jerusalem, travelers should avoid using buses and the light rail – only between Mount Herzl and Ammunition Hill to avoid “regular violent incidents.”

 Incidents must also be taken into account on the West Bank “including East Jerusalem and the Old City.”
DEBKAfile: Not once in the lengthy, detailed British government advisory are Palestinians mentioned in connection with violent incidents.
British citizens are also warned about the risk in Upper Galilee and the Golan of “accidental or deliberate rocket or mortar fire from Syria.”
