Israel has issued a travel warning for its citizens on visiting Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula amid intelligence of imminent militant attacks on the anniversary of Egypt’s 2011 upheaval that toppled former autocrat Hosni Mubarak.
Prime Minister’s Benjamin Netanyahu’s counterterrorism office says there’s a “high level” threat of attacks on January 25, the Associated Press reports.
It recommends Israelis leave the area immediately and those planning on visiting change plans.
Neighboring Sinai with its pristine beaches and Red Sea coral reefs is a popular tourist destination for Israelis.
Israel issues occasional travel warnings, based on intelligence reports.
