Israel´s Security apparatus is concerned that Al-Qaeda is planning a
large scale terror attack on Israel´s civil aviation, Walla reported.
Recently there has been an increase in the warnings within the
security system about possible attacks against civilian and foreign
flights by terrorists affiliated with Al-Qaeda and other groups, who
are working on such an attack.
At the same time, there has been an increase in reports by ground
crews and flight attendant noting that when Israeli planes are
landing in foreign countries, they are approached by Middle-Eastern
civilians who photograph them ostentatiously.
Senior defense officials suspect that this could be part of
intelligence-gathering efforts of terrorist groups that include
the "Al-Quds Corp," the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and Hezbollah,
in preparation for terrorist attacks around the world.
These efforts correspond to a promise made last year by Hezbollah
Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah, on his plan to avenge Israel´s
assassination of the head of his organization´s military wing, Imad
Mughniyah, and Israel´s elimination of nuclear scientists in Iran.
Israel´s defense apparatus and the IDF have enhanced recently the
guidelines for senior officers, diplomats and former military
officials staying abroad on how to deal with potential threats and
how to increase the level of personal safety. In a few exceptional
cases, flights to targeted destinations have been canceled.
In addition, Walla reports, several key new steps have been taken to
secure the air and ground crews on Israeli airlines, which were
already considered the safest in the world. (© 2012 JewishPress.
