State Dept. issues updated security warnings amid fears of Iran retaliatory attack

by | Apr 12, 2024

The State Department has released updated security advisories for U.S. government personnel in Israel, citing concerns of potential retaliatory actions by Iran.

The U.S. Embassy in Israel issued a security alert, advising American employees and their families to refrain from personal travel outside the greater Tel Aviv area, Jerusalem, and the southern city of Be’er Sheva until further notice.

The State Department further recommended that U.S. citizens in Israel stay updated on travel advisories and remain vigilant regarding the ongoing risks associated with travel to the region.

The Biden administration has issued this warning amidst concerns of a possible significant Iranian military retaliation following an attack on its embassy in Syria on April 1. The suspected Israeli attack resulted in the deaths of seven Iranian military advisors, including three senior members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
