Thailand Nabs One Hizbollah Terrorist, Manhunt On For Another

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

In the wake of the arrest of an Hizbollah operative on Friday, the Israeli Counter-Terrorism Bureau has issued a travel advisory warning to Israelis to avoid traveling to Bangkok, and advised those already there to avoid areas commonly frequented by Israelis.

Thailand’s Defense Minister stated that two terrorists planned to perpetrate “car bomb attacks against important locations such as the Israeli Embassy, synagogues, Israeli tour companies and restaurants visited by Israelis.” The attacks were expected to occur around February 12, the anniversary of the assassination of Hizbollah chief Imad Mughniyeh.

“A manhunt is still underway after the additional suspects,which means the threat still exists and the travel advisory is still in force,” a Thai source said. But a Thai intelligence official said that the second suspect has fled the country.
