BEIRUT – Israeli Intelligence affiliated-anti-terrorism center called on Tuesday, all Israeli nationals to leave Sinai immediately and not to get back there. The center listed some countries suspected to be targets of Hezbollah operations against Israelis and warned against going there. The countries were listed as Kashmir, South Thailand bordering Malaysia, Colombia, Kenya, Sudan and Yemen. The center expected Hezbollah to carry out a suicide or kidnapping operation in one of said countries. It called on Israeli businessmen in Arab and Islamic countries to be very careful and not to stay there for long periods of time. It underscored that returning to Israel, for the time being, would be far safer and better than any other precaution measures.
Egypt hunting for 13 members of Hezbollah cell in Sinai
Egyptian police are tracking down 13 members of an alleged Hezbollah cell believed to be hiding out with Bedouins in the Sinai peninsula, a security official said Monday.
The men are thought to be 10 Lebanese and three Sudanese - part of a group of 49 members of an alleged Hezbollah cell that the government announced is plotting to attack Egyptian institutions and Israeli tourists.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media, said the men had taken shelter in the central Sinai town of al-Nakhl.
Authorities fear the suspects may either try to escape north into Gaza some 120 miles (200 kilometers) away through the many secret tunnels or head south to the tourist resorts on the coast.
The Home Front Command will conduct a test of air raid sirens on Wednesday in the center of the country at 11:00 a.m.
The sirens will sound for one and a half minutes, and will be heard in the following locations: Modi'in and the surrounding area, Ramla, Lod, Be'er-Ya'akov, Gezer, Emek-Lod, Matityahu, and Mavo Horon.
In the event that a rocket is launched at those areas at the time of the test, an additional siren will be sounded.

I am afraid I do not understand what you are saying. On one hand you say Arab Christians do not see Druze as a fifth column and then turn around and say Arabs see the Druze as traitors. Is this some kind of Israeli supporter blind spot? The refusal to acknowledge that Arabs are also Christians?
You also make it sound like it is dirty for an Arab can be nationalistic. Unfortunately no one can be more nationalistic than Israelis and it is over land that does not belong to them.
I think it is important to always examine the turn of phrases Israeli supporters use since you speak to two audiences; those that have limited information about the truth of Israeli crimes and those that see through Israeli propaganda.
You are using ephemeral language that avoids issues and flits between realities and you are some random poster on a forum. This is amazing use of sophisticated disassembly.
Do Israeli supporters organise their debating styles on central websites or is it cultural?
