Israel urges citizens to avoid Nigeria

Nigeria was listed among the nations that the Israel authorities warned its citizens to avoid during the Passover holidays at the end of March for fear of attacks.

Israeli public radio reported on Wednesday that the government also warned its citizens to avoid travel to Egypt’s Sinai resorts and several African states.

It warned of “the dangers of attacks” in the Sinai — scene of anti-Israeli attacks both before and since Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak’s 2011 ouster — and in Kenya, Mali, Morocco and Tunisia.

Indian Kashmir and southern Thailand were also on the list of destinations for Israeli holidaymakers to avoid.
