The United States embassy in Jordan on Wednesday warned of potentially violent demonstrations following President Trump’s move to officially recognize the holy city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In a security message, the embassy said it has urged U.S. personnel to keep their children home from school on Thursday and that American citizens in Jordan should “maintain a low profile.”

“Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news for updates,” the message reads.

“Maintain a high-level of vigilance, take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security and follow instructions from local authorities. Avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.”
