Hundreds of Israeli tourists remain in the Sinai despite this week’s terror attacks there. According to Foreign Ministry figures, just a few dozen of some 1,700 Israelis currently vacationing at Red Sea resorts returned home after Monday’s triple bombing in Dahab, which killed 24 people and was followed by two explosions Wednesday that caused no fatalities. An estimated 17,000 Israelis visited Sinai over the recent Passover holiday and Israeli officials noted that the visits continue despite regular alerts of impending terror attacks in the peninsula. Three Israelis were wounded in the Dahab bombings.
