FCO warns of extra Jerusalem security

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office says that the US Embassy in Jerusalem will be opened in the Arnona area of West Jerusalem today, May 14. 

Israeli Independence Day will also be taking place today. 

As a result, there will be enhanced security measures in place across Jerusalem, including the Old City. 

Roads may be periodically closed, including those linking Jerusalem with Ben Gurion Airport. Travellers are advised to allow extra time for all journeys.
