Israel tells citizens to leave Sinai due to kidnap threat

Jerusalem (CNN) — An Israeli counter-terrorism unit is warning Israeli citizens in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula to return home because they face the risk of militant attacks.

The group said it had “concrete information” about an “imminent risk of a terrorist abduction operation” in the Sinai — a popular tourist destination spot for Israeli Jews and Arabs.

Warnings about travel to Sinai and other places have been issued frequently by the Israeli government.
