Israel warns of serious, current threat of terrorist attacks in Sinai

Israel urged its citizens yesterday to leave Sinai immediately, Reuters says. Tel Avivintensified its warning against citizens traveling to Sinai “for fear of an imminent terror attack” by Daesh, according to Times of Israel. Eitan Ben-David, the head of Israel’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau, said that in light of the threat in Sinai, Israel “has considered the possibility of closing the Taba border with Egypt, but right now we have no intention of doing so.” Ben-David’s warnings point to a “concrete threat,” with the travel advisory warning against a “serious and current threat of terror attacks being carried out against tourists, notably Israelis, in the immediate future.” Sinai already bears the highest warning level from the Bureau.
