LAST UPDATED: 02/20/2013 22:10
A travel warning has been issued for Israelis traveling in Cyprus, the Israel Radio reported on Wednesday night. The warning was issued due to the presence of Hossam Taleb Yaacoub, the Lebanese-Sweedish terrorist who planned the July attacks in Bulgaria against Israeli tourists, in Cyprus. Yaacoub is currently facing trial in Cyprus for his involvement in the July attack, yet has been accused of using similar methods of surveillance against Israeli tourists in Cyprus.
