Highlights: NSC official: Dozens of attacks against Israelis and Jews thwarted around the world. "We don't tell Israelis not to fly," he says, referring to Israelis' fear of flying abroad. "Countries with travel warning level 1-2, if there is a desire to reach the country, they should travel, but precautions must be taken everywhere in the world," he adds. Among the countries to which the travel warning has been raised from 1 to 2 are Germany, Hungary, Spain, France, England and many other countries that until recently were safe for Israeli tourists.


Shortly after the NSC's travel warnings were issued, the official said that "there is an awakening in the global jihad effort" • "We are not saying not to fly, but to take precautions" • The travel warning was issued to dozens of countries simultaneously, including Germany, Spain and France, which until now were safe for Israelis


Many Israelis and Jews are currently around the world, and a senior counterterrorism official clarifies, "In recent weeks, we have thwarted dozens of attacks against Israelis and Jews on all continents around the world. We continue to thwart efforts to harm Israelis around the world through the Iranians and Hamas in a variety of places around the world.

"There is an awakening in the effort of global jihad and in the background there is Hanukkah, but here, too, there is a need to check every incident and just as the Israelis can come, so can the terrorist elements, of course many of the events are secure, but we have to remain alert and arrive at secure events."

The announcement comes close to the publication of the NSC's warning map. "We don't tell Israelis not to fly," he says, referring to Israelis' fear of flying abroad. "Countries with travel warning level 1-2, if there is a desire to reach the country, they should travel, but precautions must be taken everywhere in the world.

"You have to look at the derivatives of the trip. Level 2 does not tell Israelis not to travel, it is simply necessary to be more careful than usual, the usual is level 1. The significance of 2 is that every Israeli who wants to travel, who will be examined and examine the situation there, will be updated on what is happening there and will take the personal steps required of every Israeli during this period."

In addition, the NSC made a decision to raise the travel warning to dozens of countries simultaneously, a decision that was never made. Among the countries to which the travel warning has been raised from 1 to 2 are Germany, Hungary, Spain, France, England and many other countries that until recently were considered very safe for Israeli tourists.

According to estimates, there are Israelis who are also in countries considered very unsafe, under Travel Warning 4, the highest. For example, currently, there are several dozen Israelis in Sinai, Egypt is considered a dangerous country for Israelis and has the highest travel warning level, Level 4, as well as Turkey, Jordan, Bahrain and other destinations around the world.
