This past Saturday [February 12] marked the three-year anniversary of the car bomb that killed key Hizbullah operative Imad Mughniyeh, an anniversary that Israel is watching with concern. Hizbullah blames Israel for the assassination, although Israel has not claimed credit.  

Jerusalem said that Israel temporarily closed the threatened embassies, while also noting that the Foreign Ministry had said needed precautions were being taken.

The brief Foreign Ministry statement did not say in which countries the threatened facilities are located. However, the National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau posted a travel warning last week for a number of countries that could be at risk in light of the anniversaries of the deaths of Mughniyeh and another senior Hizbullah terrorist, Abbas Musawi.

The travel warning, posted on the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office Web site on February 11, noted the anniversaries of the terrorists’ deaths and said, “Concomitantly, there is a growing threat of attacks against Israeli and Jewish targets abroad, especially in Egypt, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, the Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania and Venezuela.”

The warning said that in light of the threat, the Counter-Terrorism Bureau “recommends not visiting places in which there is a high concentration of Israelis and listening to directives from local security elements.”
