Terrorism in Sinai


Tourists who have been following events in Egypt lately and reading about the Egyptian Army in recent months being involved in counter terrorism operations may be worried about traveling to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

This blog confirms that all terrorist activities are confined to small pockets in the North of Sinai. Specifically the North Eastern coastline area around Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid on the border with Gaza. There have been no terrorist activities reported South of this area. The highway from Suez at Ahmed Hamdy Tunnel South past Ras Sidr and El Tor towards Sharm El Sheikh and onto Dahab and Nuweiba are open and coach services are running normally to the resorts.

There is no need for travellers to cancel or adjust their travel plans to any resort South of Rafah at this time.

Sinai welcomes travelers and ensures their safety at all times.
