Israeli authorities warned Israelis to return immediately from the Sinai peninsula, citing a terrorist threat.

“From information at our disposal, it arises that terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip and additional elements are actively planning to perpetrate terrorist attacks, especially abductions, against Israeli tourists in Sinai in the immediate term,” said a warning issued Thursday by the National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau.

It called on “all Israelis in Sinai to leave the area immediately and return home.”
