Israel reopened the Taba Crossing on Friday, allowing Israelis to travel to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

"According to a Counter Terrorism Bureau assessment and with the approval of the government, it was made a decision to allow Israeli citizens to exit through the Taba crossing to Sinai", the bureau said in a statement.

Gendelman also stated that the terror threat remains and Israelis now vacationing in the area should return.

Nonetheless, it stressed that "the threat posed to Israelis in the Sinai remains serious, concrete and immediate, as reflected in the serious travel warning and the recommendation to refrain from visiting the area, and calling on all tourists to leave immediately".
