United States government workers in Israel must obtain approval if they want to travel within a mile-and-a-half of the Lebanon border.

The State Department sent a security message on Wednesday to US citizens registered with the nation’s diplomatic missions in Israel. It also included a ban on visiting most of the Golan Heights without permission.

The message also reminded workers of the ban on traveling on public buses throughout Israel and the West Bank. The reminder came on the same day of a stabbing attack on a Tel Aviv bus by a Palestinian assailant.
