Israel asks its citizens to leave Sinai immediately

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israeli security apparatuses warned Israelis against travelling to the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula, to which they enter without visas, citing warnings of possible abduction of citizens to trade them for Palestinian or Arab prisoners.

The Hebrew radio on Saturday quoted a security source as saying that it was dangerous to travel to Sinai at present, and urged all those there to leave it “immediately”.

The source said that the warnings indicate that anti Israel organizations were planning to capture Israeli tourists to exchange them for Arab or Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

He claimed that the Egyptian Bedouin tribes were assisting cells planning to abduct Israeli tourists in Sinai.
