The United States issued a travel advisory on Wednesday urging citizens to avoid going to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, following the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war.

Additionally, it strongly recommends reconsidering travel plans to other countries in the region.

The warning comes after the bloody surprise attack carried out by Hamas against Israel, which has claimed the lives of at least 22 American citizens.

A travel advisory has also been issued for the Gaza Strip, where it is at a Level 4 – Do Not Travel.

The State Department has raised the advisory for Israel and the occupied West Bank to Level 3 – Reconsider Travel.

Additionally, the number of US nationals who may have been kidnapped by Hamas remains uncertain.

This increases concern about the safety of American citizens in the region.

The US State Department has emphasized the dangerousness of the Gaza Strip, highlighting the ongoing threat of «terrorism, civil unrest and armed conflict.»

Furthermore, they stress that the United States Government cannot provide consular services in Gaza.

This is because diplomatic personnel are prohibited from entering the Strip.

It is important to remember that Hamas, the group that controls Gaza, is classified by Washington as a terrorist organization.

What the US government warns

The travel alert emphasizes that rocket launches from the Gaza Strip towards Israel may occur at any time.

This would trigger military responses by Israeli forces.

Furthermore, in the midst of armed conflicts, it is common for border crossings between Gaza, Israel and Egypt to be closed.

Regarding Israel and the occupied West Bank, the State Department warns of the constant threat of «terrorism and civil unrest.»

In addition, the United States diplomatic and consular personnel in the region are restricted to only making emergency trips.

That limitation could be further intensified in the event of new security threats.

The surprise attack by Hamas, which occurred last Saturday and has started an ongoing war with heavy exchanges of fire, has had heartbreaking consequences.

In Israel, at least 1,200 deaths and more than 2,900 injuries have been recorded as a result of the attacks.

Meanwhile, in Gaza, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has reported 950 deaths and at least 5,000 injuries.

The travel advisory seeks to protect US citizens in the face of increasing violence in the region and growing threats to their safety.

Uncertainty about the outcome of this conflict and concern for the safety of travelers is a source of tension.

On the other hand, Israeli aircraft attacked neighborhoods in the Gaza Strip during the night and into the early hours of Wednesday as the army intensifies its offensive.

The war, which has claimed at least 2,300 lives on both sides, is expected to intensify.

The attack carried out by Hamas over the weekend fueled Israel’s determination to end the insurgent group’s dominance in Gaza, according to the AP.

The United Nations refugee agency FOR Palestinians says that there are 250,000 displaced people in the Palestinian territory.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that Hamas was beheading soldiers and raping women during their attack on Israel.
