An advisory message was issued Tuesday to US citizens in Israel and the Palestinian territories by the US consulate in Jerusalem in the aftermath of heightened tension in the region, following the deadly battle at sea between Navy commandos and pro-Palestinian activists onboard a Gaza-bound flottila.

The consulate advised American citizens to be "on alert for possible road blockages, demonstrations and protests," adding that US citizens "should specially use caution in places with large Arab populations, including Umm el Fahem, Acre, Jaffa, Haifa, East Jerusalem and Jerusalem's Old City. Demonstrations are likely in various West Bank cities as well as in Gaza."
