Israel has issued an "urgent" warning to its citizens to leave Egypt's Sinai Peninsula immediately.
It comes after "concrete evidence" of an expected terror attempt to kidnap Israelis in the region.
The warning was issued by the Israeli prime minister's office. It took the unusual step of calling on families of Israelis touring the Sinai to contact them. Israel's anti-terror office has a standard travel advisory telling Israelis to stay out of the Sinai desert because of the threat of terror attacks.
However, thousands of Israelis routinely ignore the warning and vacation in the desert and along its Red Sea coast. Egyptian security officials said about 35,000 Israelis are in the Sinai now, and they expected thousands more to arrive later this month.
"We call on all Israelis now in Sinai to leave at once and return to Israel," said the warning. "Families of Israelis now in Sinai are requested to make contact and update them of this travel warning."
“On the one hand, Syria is talking about peace, and on the other it is giving Scuds to Hizbullah in order to threaten Israel," he said. "Syria’s smuggling weapons to Hizbullah and strengthening terror organizations contradict its declaration that it is seeking peace. Syria can not play both games. The true face of Syria has been revealed."
The bureau, a branch in the Prime Minister's Office, advised Israelis currently in Egypt, and in particular in Sinai, to leave immediately.
