US Embassy in Jerusalem directs all US employees to shelter in place

The US Embassy in Jerusalem has told all US government employees to shelter in place until further notice, according to a security alert posted after Iran began launching drones and missiles at Israel.

“In response to security incidents and without advance notice, the US Embassy may further restrict or prohibit US government employees and their family members from traveling to certain areas of Israel (including the Old City of Jerusalem) and the West Bank,” the statement says.
