Fearing Hizbullah or Iranian retaliation, the IDF on Wednesday sent a letter to senior officers in the reserves urging them to take extra security precautions when traveling overseas.

The letter, written by Brig.-Gen. Kobi Barak, head of the IDF Operations Division, said that the background for the warning was the 2008 assassination of Hizbullah’s military chief Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus, which was attributed to the Mossad, as well as the recent assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran, also attributed to Israel.
