July 7, 2013 22:30

Amid the increasing chaos in Egypt, the Prime Minister Office's Counterterrorism Bureau re-issued a travel advisory on Sunday warning all Israelis to stay clear of Sinai.

"In light of the grave security situation in the Sinai peninsula, including violent clashes, and in light of information about plans for other attacks, the threat is growing about attacks on Israelis in Sinai and on its beaches," the statement said.

According to the statement, Israelis could be the target of immediate attacks, specifically kidnapping attempts. The statement "forcefully" called upon all Israelis to refrain from visiting Sinai now, and for those already there to "leave the region immediately and return to Israel."
