Zionist authorities warned Israelis on Wednesday against visiting Tunisia, where Jewish pilgrims will celebrate a religious festival later this month, citing the threat of Takfiri attack.
It also said any Israelis currently there should “leave the country immediately.”
The festival of Lag BaOmer, taking place this year on May 14-15, draws hundreds of Jews to tombs of revered rabbis as well as the famed El Ghriba synagogue on the Tunisian holiday island of Djerba.
“Terrorist elements, especially those affiliated with global jihad, continue to act toward carrying out attacks in Tunisia,” the counter-terrorism bureau said in a statement released by the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“There is a risk of attacks, against Jewish destinations as well,” the bureau said, recommending that visits to Tunisia be avoided.
