JERUSALEM, Israel - The Israeli government's Counter-Terrorism Bureau issued an updated travel advisory for the remainder of the summer and the upcoming Jewish fall holidays.
Travel to Muslim countries, including Jordan, Egypt, Morocco and Kenya should be avoided.
The warning specifed avoiding the resorts in the Egyptian Sinai, a favorite destination for vacationing families.
Israeli businessmen traveling abroad were advised to exercise caution with contacts from Arab or Muslim countries, especially against kidnapping attempts.
Included among countries in which a "very serious concrete threat" exists are Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Afghanistan.
Chechnya, Kashmir, Mindanao Islands, the Philippines, Algiers, Djibouti, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Pakistan also pose a "serious concrete threat."
"Hezbollah continues to accuse Israel of the death of [senior commander] Imad Mughniyeh, which increases threats of terror made by Hezbollah toward Israeli targets abroad," the warning read.
Mughniyeh was killed by a car bomb in February 2008 in Damascus.
