Israel Tells Its Citizens to Leave The Sinai Immediately

Israel has told its citizens to evacuate the Sinai Peninsula (Egypt) as soon as possible. They cited evidence of an expected terrorist kidnapping attempt. I have no doubt that Israel is worried about their citizens. I do wonder though if the reason for their fear is based on information they have, or information they expect following what they are about to do. If you have not caught my meaning, this could be a sign an Israeli strike against Iran is coming in the near term.


"Israel issued an "urgent" warning Tuesday to its citizens to leave Egypt's Sinai Peninsula immediately citing "concrete evidence of an expected terrorist attempt to kidnap Israelis in Sinai."

The statement from the Israeli prime minister's anti-terror office took the unusual step of calling on families of Israelis visiting the Sinai to establish contact with them.

The commander of the anti-terror office, Brig. Gen. Nitzan Uriel, acknowledged that there had been rumors that Israelis have been kidnapped in the Sinai. "We don't work according to rumors," he the Israel TV. "We work according to firm intelligence." He said it would "take some time" to disprove the rumors, which circulated all day Tuesday.
Uriel told another TV station that about 1,200 Israelis are in Sinai now.

Egyptian police have been searching the Sinai throughout the day for any missing Israelis but found no evidence that anyone was missing, according to two Egyptian security officers speaking under customary conditions of anonymity.
