Communicated by the Israeli Prime Minister’s Media Adviser
Hizbullah is apparently preparing to perpetrate a serious terrorist attack (murder or kidnapping) against an Israeli target, including abroad. Such a terrorist attack threatens every Israeli, especially those holding senior positions. The National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau reiterates its warnings to this effect and recommends that Israelis currently abroad adopt stricter rules of conduct in order to minimize this potential threat:
Be especially aware and sensitive regarding any exceptional phenomena. Report these to the local police.
Absolutely avoid visiting or staying in those countries under Counter-Terrorism Bureau travel warnings, especially Islamic/Arab countries.
Reject suspect and unexpected business or recreational proposals from suspect or unknown sources.
Reject invitations to unexpected meetings in remote areas and at night.
Hold meetings in crowded places, during the day and with reliable companions.
Avoid suspect lodgings.
Avoid boarding taxis that stop next to you on the street, at their initiative. Prefer to order taxis by phone.
During prolonged stays abroad, take care to vary your routine by changing your lodgings, daily habits, restaurants, etc.
