Israel on Thursday warned its citizens against travelling to Sri Lanka following the recent spate of terrorist attacks in that country, Anadolu Agency reports.
In a “level-two” travel advisory, Israel’s Counter-terrorism Bureau warned of the “high possibility” of fresh terrorist attacks in the South Asian island nation.
According to a statement released by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, the travel advisory will be reevaluated in line with security-related developments.
On Easter Sunday, 359 people were killed when eight separate locations — both inside and outside Sri Lankan capital Colombo — were rocked by explosions.
The bombings targeted Christian churches in the cities of Kochchikade, Negombo and Batticaloa, along with three upscale hotels in the capital.
