Foreign Ministry issues travel warning for Thailand

The Foreign Ministry issued a travel warning on Thursday advising Israeli nationals to exercise caution if Thailand.
In a message posted on the Ministry's Bankgkok mission, the ministry stated that Israeli travelers are advised to "be cautious, alert, and attentive to the security guidelines in Thailand."
The message further stated that the warning was issued because of "recently-uncovered terrorist attempts in the capital Bangkok."
A series of bomb blasts struck Thailand on Tuesday in what authorities suspect to be a failed terrorist attempt against Israeli diplomats.
Similar warnings have already been issued by the US, Canada, Britain, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, and Austria.
In January, Israel's Counter-Terrorism Bureau issued a “severe travel warning” against travel to Thailand after Thai authorities announced they had arrested a Lebanese Hezbollah operative in the capital. The warning was rescinded later that month after the National Security Council's Counter Terrorism Bureau declared the country safe for travelers.
