The situation in Israel continues to be unpredictable. Individuals should follow local government advice to increase their security awareness and remain safe. Mortar and rocket fire may take place without warning.
U.S. citizens in Israel who need assistance should contact the closest U.S. embassy or consulate using this crisis intake form. Family members can also submit information on behalf of a U.S. citizen family member.
U.S. citizens who wish to leave and can do so safely are advised to check the status of the border crossings or verify flights have not been cancelled before heading to the Ben Gurion Airport.
