Likud MK Danny Danon Monday warned Israelis traveling in Thailand to be wary of the terror threat from Hezbollah, after Thai authorities discovered bomb-making materials linked to a Lebanese terror suspect.

"Preventing the attack will be a victory for Israel," Danon said, adding that the terror threat is more acute in Thailand now than before.

The Counter-Terrorism Bureau issued a “severe travel warning” on Friday advising Israeli nationals to stay away from Bangkok after Thai authorities announced they had arrested a Lebanese Hezbollah operative in the capital.

According to the warning, Israelis should refrain from traveling to Bangkok in the “near future,” not congregate at spots known to be favored by Israelis, refuse to accept packages from strangers and raise their overall vigilance.
