Israelis Warned Before Blasts To Stay Away From Sinai

Counter-Terrorism Bureau Head Danny Arditi issued a warning to Israeli citizens just a few weeks ago to refrain from visiting any Arab country.

Speaking to Ynet, Arditi said: "The warnings in our hands lead to small organizations affiliated with al-Qaeda in one way or another. A month ago we issue a travel warning to Israelis against traveling to Egypt, including Sinai, following relatively reliable intelligence on intentions to carry out terror attacks against foreign and Israeli tourists."

Sinai travel advisory - 8 May 2006

(Communicated by the National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Division)

The question remains whether the Israelis will in fact heed the call and leave Egypt at the moment there are only 200 people reported to be from Israel in the Sinai.

But beginning of June will be the Jewish holiday of Shavuot (the festival of the giving of the Tora on Mt. Sinai) and I can imagine the warnings will be widely ignored.
