On 11 April 2024, the U.K. Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) issued updated travel advice for Israel, which reads in part as follows: “The Israeli government has also raised the possibility of an attack on Israeli territory from Iran, and that such an attack could trigger wider escalation. On 10 April, Israel’s Foreign Affairs Minister Israel Katz said: ‘If Iran attacks from its territory – Israel will respond and attack in Iran.’

“We recognise this a fast-moving situation that poses significant risks. The situation has potential to deteriorate quickly and without warning. This could disrupt air and road links out of the country. If your reason to remain in Israel and the OPTs is not essential you should consider leaving if it is safe to do so.”
