The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv released the following Warden Message on 24 October 2008: “This Warden Message replaces the Warden Message dated October 10, 2008, entitled ‘Warden Message — Riots in Acre, Israel.’
“Events that began on the eve of Yom Kippur (Wednesday night October 8, 2008) in Acre (Akko) have quieted. The U.S. Embassy has lifted the travel restrictions to Acre for U.S. Government employees and family members.
“American citizens are urged to continue to maintain a high level of vigilance and situational awareness while traveling to mixed neighborhoods. Based upon past events, Americans should be alert to the possibility of demonstrations and other actions throughout Israel. We remind American citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. American citizens are therefore urged to avoid the areas of demonstrations if possible, and to exercise caution if they are within the vicinity of any demonstrations. American citizens should stay current with media coverage of local events and be aware of their surroundings at all times.”
