State Department Issues ‘Worldwide Caution’ Alert

October 19, 2023

The State Department on Thursday issued a bulletin for “worldwide caution” because of “increased tensions” around the world and “the potential for terrorist attacks, demonstrations or violent actions.”

The State Department warned that Americans abroad should stay alert, enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program and follow the State Department on social media.

The State Department is instructing its embassies and consulates around the world to conduct emergency security reviews amid ongoing protests sparked by the Israel-Hamas war, according to sources familiar with the matter and documents reviewed by ABC News.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken also instructed personnel to evaluate whether embassies should issue alerts to Americans in their respective countries about threats posed by the demonstrations, as many have already done.

A number of posts have asked the State Department to modify their operations due to security concerns, sources said, but at this point it does not appear that any additional embassies have asked to go on authorized departure, and so far none have requested a full evacuation.
