Israel issues urgent Sinai travel advisory ahead of Sukkot

| October 10, 2011

Israel's Counter-Terrorism Bureau on Monday warned Israelis to stay away from the Sinai Peninsula during the upcoming week-long Festival of Tabernacles (Sukkot), which begins Wednesday night, for fear of possible attacks from militants based there.

A statement from the Bureau also urged Israelis currently in the peninsula "to leave at once and return to Israel."

Sinai is a popular vacation spot for Israelis, but in recent months, Israel has become increasing concerned that militant groups have become entrenched there and seek to attack or kidnap Israeli vacationers.
