Severe Travel Warning for Thailand Cancelled

The Task Force for Fighting Terrorism cancelled, Thursday, the severe travel warning for Thailand. The counterterrorism bureau cited the recent arrest of a Hizbullah agent and revelation of a weapons warehouse and other Hizbullah facilities in the country.

The task force called on Israeli tourists to remain alert, citing concerns over Hizbullah vows of revenge, surrounding the elimination of arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh, for which Hizbullah blames Israel. The bureau also cited Iran's threat of revenge for what it sees as Israeli involvement in the recent deaths of Iranian nuclear scientists, as witnessed by the threats against Israeli and Jewish targets in neighborhing Azerbaijan.
