Counter Terrorism Bureau: Safe to visit Thailand

January 26, 2012 17:26

Thailand is once again safe for Israeli travelers, at least according to the National Security Council's Counter Terrorism Bureau.

The Bureau released a statement Thursday saying a previous "severe travel warning" issued two weeks ago over the likelihood of an immediate attack against Israelis in Bangkok has been canceled because of the work of the Thai security forces that included the arrest of an alleged Hezbollah operative there, and the uncovering of a Hezbollah weapons storehouse –and other Hezbollah facilities -- in the country.

At the same time, the statement said, because of the possibility that there remains some terrorist infrastructure in Thailand, and in light of concern that Hezbollah will try to avenge the 2008 killing of Hezbollah's shadowy commander Imad Muganiyah on the anniversary of his death on February 12,  Israelis traveling to the country are advised to exercise caution.
