TEL AVIV - The Anti-Terror Bureau warned travelers Thursday that the terrorist threat has grown significantly higher in Jordan.
"For some time, there have been travel warnings from the Anti-Terror Bureau regarding Jordan," the statement said. "In light of concrete information, the terror threat in Jordan has worsened in the past few days, particularly against tourist sites and Israeli targets."
The Bureau went on to recommend putting travel plans to the Arab country on hold.
However, Bureau official Elkana Harnof said that traveling to Amman via Royal Jordanian Airlines was safe given its good security.
"Jordan is perpetually under threat, but now the normal threats have become concrete and directed against Israeli targets," Harnof said.
