JERUSALEM (AP) — A senior Israeli counterterrorism official claimed Friday that Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah are plotting attacks on Israelis overseas and urged travelers to be vigilant.
Israel already has accused Iran of being behind three attacks this week on Israeli targets — a botched bomb plot in Thailand, a bombing in India that wounded an Israeli diplomat's wife, and an attempted bombing in the former Soviet republic of Georgia this week.
The senior official from Israel's counterterrorism bureau did not identify other countries where Israelis might be targeted. But he said Israel has "general information reflecting intent," citing intelligence material and findings from investigations into the overseas attacks.
