(Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)

Hizbullah has repeatedly blamed Israel for the death of Imad Mughniyeh, thus increasing the danger of its terrorist threats against Israeli targets abroad. Therefore, the National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau recommends that Israelis abroad avoid places where there is a high concentration of Israelis. The Bureau also reiterates its existing warnings regarding the abduction of Israelis abroad, including business people, mainly those with ties with Arab or Muslim counterparts.

The Bureau recommends the following to Israelis abroad:

1. Maintain a high level of alert and awareness regarding any unusual phenonena.

2. Absolutely avoid visiting or staying in Arab/Islamic countries for which travel advisories have been issued.

3. Reject any enticing or unexpected proposals and refuse to accept any unexpected gifts or offers from suspect or unknown sources.

4. Decline invitations to unexpected meetings, especially in remote places, and go to meetings with reliable companions.
