Counter-Terrorism Bureau Reissues Warning

Ad Feedback - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israel's Counterterrorism Bureau (CTB) reiterated a warning issued several weeks ago to Israelis traveling abroad, advising caution, particularly in the Egyptian Sinai, Thailand, Turkey, the Philippines, and Uzbekistan.

With the Jewish High Holy Days less than a month away, the warning was aimed at Israelis who often go abroad during the holiday season.

The CTB strongly suggested that Israelis vacationing in the Sinai leave without further delay.

Despite two recently thwarted attempts to kidnap Israeli businessmen abroad, Hezbollah continues threatening to avenge the death of arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh.

"In light of the specific present circumstances, the CTB has requested to emphasize the travel advisories," the travel advisory stated.

Mughniyeh, killed last February by a bomb planted in his car in an upscale Damascus neighborhood, was Hezbollah's deputy chief.

"Hezbollah has repeatedly blamed Israel for the assassination of their operative Imad Mughniyeh, which amplifies the terror threats. Thus the CTB has intensified its current travel advisories on kidnapping of Israelis abroad, especially businesspeople and more specifically those win contact with Arab or Muslim businesspeople," the advisory stated.
