Tuesday, 20 September 2022 | The National Security Council (NSC) Counter-Terrorism Bureau of the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office announced on Monday its assessment and travel warnings ahead of the upcoming Jewish high holidays.

Among its conclusions was that Iran and its proxies have intensified their attempts to attack Israelis overseas during the last two years. Several of these attempts were foiled in 2021–2022, including a terrorist plot in Turkey in June 2022.

“We believe that Iran will continue its efforts to attack Israeli targets around the world in countries that are close to Iran and in Western Europe,” stated the NSC.

“Global jihad [“struggle,” war with unbelievers (in Islam)] and radical Islamic organizations, especially Islamic State, and their supporters, continue to be highly motivated in their efforts to carry out attacks, including against Jewish and Israeli targets, in various countries,” it said.

The NSC added, “This is backed up by open declarations by the organizations’ leaders calling for attacks on Israelis and Jews. These organizations have infrastructure and are active in the Middle East (especially northern Sinai), Africa and Asia. This is in addition to their irregular activity in other countries.”
