A joint written statement was made on the subject by the Israeli Prime Ministry National Security Center and the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The statement stated that “violence and antisemitism against Israelis and Jews have increased worldwide” due to Israel’s attacks on Gaza, and asked Israelis to increase their precautions during their travels.

In the statement, a call was made to “verify whether there are protests and violent demonstrations against Israel in the selected destination, even in countries where there is no travel warning,” and emphasized that “these events took place in many countries of the world, including countries without travel warnings.”


In the statement, it was recommended to “stay away from demonstrations and protests, be alert and pay attention to what is happening around”, and asked Israelis to “avoid openly displaying Israeli and Jewish symbols”.

“The National Security Center is calling for a review of the requirement to travel abroad these days.” In the statement, it was recommended to “postpone travel to countries with travel warnings, especially Arab countries, the Middle East, the North Caucasus and countries neighboring Iran.” (AA)
