Israel/Palestinian Terr.: Ongoing protests reported in Ramallah February 11 /update 3

Fatah holds protest in Ramallah in continued opposition to US President Trump’s peace plan February 11; avoid all gatherings



An ongoing protest has been reported in Ramallah on Tuesday, February 11, in continued opposition to US President Donald Trump's proposed Middle East peace plan. Hundreds of protesters can be seen gathered in avenues of the city, whom have reportedly been summoned by Fatah. The protest is likely to continue over the coming several hours, continuing to prompt transportation disruptions. A heightened security presence remains possible.


Tensions have increased in the region since US President Donald Trump announced his Israeli-Palestinian peace plan on January 28. Palestinians have held multiple demonstrations in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank since the announcement, which have sometimes turned violent.


Individuals in the West Bank, and Israel more generally, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and public demonstrations as a precaution, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.

Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
