The Prime Minister’s Office Counter-Terrorism Bureau on Tuesday lifted a travel advisory which recommended that Israelis refrain from visiting Turkey.

The advisory was issued after the botched Navy raid on the Turkish flotilla to the Gaza Strip in late May which ended with nine dead Turkish passengers aboard the Mavi Marmara.

The bureau released a statement on Tuesday saying that the situation in Turkey has eased up and that as a result Israelis were no longer in direct danger.

The bureau recommended however that Israelis stay away from political demonstrations in the country.
