Russian foreign ministry issues travel warning on Tel Aviv due to Gaza protests

The Russian Foreign Ministry issues a travel warning to stay away from public places in Tel Aviv due to rallies by activists hoping to escalate tensions in the ongoing deadly clashes between Palestinian protesters and the Israeli army on the border with the Gaza Strip.

The ministry tweets, in Russian, “Tel Aviv rallies by left and right activists dedicated to escalation of the conflict on the border of the Gaza Strip. It is recommended to avoid places where there are mass gatherings of people.”

On Friday, some 30,000 Palestinians took part in demonstrations along the Gaza border, during which rioters threw rocks and firebombs at Israeli troops on the other side of the fence, burned tires and scrap wood, sought to breach and damage the security fence, and in one case opened fire at Israeli soldiers.
