On 30 March 2022, the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “Due to recent terrorist attacks in the area and potential security issues associated with the upcoming April 2022 holidays, U.S. government employees and their family members are restricted until further notice from entering the Old City of Jerusalem after dark (dusk to dawn) and on Fridays. Damascus, Herod’s, and Lions’ Gates are off limits as well…U.S. citizens should take this into consideration when planning their own activities.”
