JERUSALEM -- Israel's government is warning its citizens to beware of
possible attacks when they travel abroad, singling out threats by the
Lebanese group Hezbollah.
Two years ago, a prominent Hezbollah commander, Imad Mughniyeh, was
killed in an explosion in Syria. Hezbollah blamed Israel and pledged
Israel and Hezbollah fought a fierce monthlong war in 2006.
In the advisory issued Sunday, the government tells Israelis to take
precautions when they are abroad. These include avoiding most Islamic
countries, rejecting tempting offers and unexpected gifts, turning down
invitations to unexpected meetings and avoiding routines.
The government issued the advisory with the approach of the Passover
holiday, a heavy travel period.
