The IDF said Monday it has warned its top officers to be on guard when traveling abroad following the mysterious death of a Hamas commander in Dubai.

Hamas has accused Israel of carrying out the Jan. 20 slaying of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh and vowed revenge, hinting it could attack Israeli targets abroad.

Although Israel has not acknowledged any role in the killing, military officials said Monday they were taking the threats seriously and had instructed senior officers, military attaches and soldiers on study leaves to exercise caution when traveling abroad.

The officials said the military fears Hamas could try to capture IDF officers outside the country. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were discussing a sensitive security matter.
