Iranian and Hezbollah operatives are still seeking to attack Israeli targets in several countries, Israel’s Counterterrorism Bureau indicated on Friday, warning Israeli citizens to adhere to the directives of local security forces.

The remarks, given during a press briefing, came after earlier Friday Thai security forces have upped alertness levels in the country’s international airports and rail system over what local police is saying is an Israeli warning against new terror attacks.

According to a report by the Bangkok Post, Chief of Royal Thai Police Priewpan Damapong told the Transport Ministry on Thursday to place the country’s six international airports on high alert. Alertness levels were raised from the normal 2 to 3.

The Bangkok Post cited a Thai government source as saying that the move followed an advisory issued by Israel to bolster airport security over intelligence reports indicating the possibility of fresh attacks.
