Tel Aviv (dpa) - Israel‘s border crossing to the Sinai Peninsula was reopened Friday after a one-and-a-half-week closure, but Israel warned its citizens to be cautious about crossing over amid continuing unrest in the Egyptian region.

"The risk to Israelis in the Sinai is still very serious, concrete and immediate," read a statement from the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, noting that travel warnings remain in force despite the reopening.

The closure was prompted by worries about a possible terrorist attack targeting Israelis. During the closure, it was still possible for Israelis to return home from Egypt, but not for anyone to travel into Sinai.

The Sinai Peninsula has been especially restive in recent years due to a local group of militants loyal to the Islamic State extremist militia and active in the northern part of Sinai.

A recent series of attacks, focused on security forces and Coptic Christians, prompted Egyptian authorities this week to impose a night-time curfew in some parts of the largely desert area.
