Hezbollah, Iran planning to kill, kidnap Israelis says travel advisory

Israel’s National Security Council, Counter-Terrorism Bureau released a warning Thursday advising its citizens that Hezbollah and Iran were planning to murder or kidnap Israeli businessmen and former state officials.

Citing solid intelligence, the bureau explained that “threats continue to exist against Israelis abroad, particularly business people and former officials of the security apparatus who are at a high risk for kidnapping or murder.”

The bureau issued a similar warning in June advising Israelis against travel to Egypt.
