Iraanse terreurverdachten zingen als kanaries: meer aanslagen onderweg

 De Iraanse terreurverdachten aangehouden in Thailand zingen als kanaries. Zij hebben toegegeven dat er meer aanslagen onderweg zijn tegen Israëlische doelen in het buitenland.

Speaking to reports on Friday, a top official at the Counterterrorism Bureau indicated that an investigation of Iranian nationals apprehended following the botched Bangkok bombing indicated that more attacks were in the works.

"I call on Israelis abroad to show awareness and take basic steps to reduce possible harm," the official said, adding that they should "take not of suspicious objects and refrain from taking packages from strangers" and "be attentive to the directives of local security forces."

The official added, however, security forces are not in possession of any specific information concerning a certain country in which such an attack could take place, citing only a general warning.

He added that current intelligence points at a clear Iranian involvement in all three of this week's attacks, adding that Israel was taking into account a remark 
by Hezbollah head Hassan Nasrallah, according to which the group planned attacks against high-ranking Israeli officials to avenge the2008 assassination of Hezbollah's deputy leader Imad Mughniyah.

Dat de verdachten niet kunnen aangeven waar precies nieuwe aanslagen zullen plaatsvinden is niet zo , dat heeft alles te maken met de commandostructuur van de terreurcellen.
