Israel warns its citizens against traveling to Egypt, Jordan
Israeli "Counter-Terrorism Leadership" warned on Friday Israelis against visiting Arab states, especially Egypt and Jordan. The leadership said that this warning was issued after they received intelligence about "global Jihad" cells planning to carry out bombing operations against Israeli embassies and tourists in Arab states. Israeli newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, cited an Israeli official as saying that terrorist activities have recently increased in Arab states sharing borders with Israel. The newspaper said that Jordanian security forces foiled an attack on tens of Israeli tourists in an Amman hotel, noting that an Al-Qaeda cell infilterated into Jordan last week.
