The Jerusalem Post reports that following a concrete terror threat, the National Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Division on Tuesday has called on all Israelis to leave the Sinai Peninsula immediately.
It comes on the heels of what the terrorism division called “concrete information” that terrorists were planning to kidnap Israelis in the area.
The announcement called on families of those currently in the Sinai to contact their relatives, update them on the terror warning and urge them to return home.[…]
The urgent language of the current advisory is extremely rare, and Channel 2 said the warning was the most severe ever to be issued concerning the Sinai Peninsula.
