The unsuccessful bomb attack in Thailand to injure Israelis, which was planned by Iranian nationals a week ago, has forced Jews and Israelis around the world to keep a watchful eye on their surroundings these days.

Saedi Moradi was one of the Iranians in Bangkok planning the operation.  Things didn’t go as planned for Moradi, who blew off his own leg with an explosive device following an attempted escape from a safe house that went up in flames.

Now, according to a report in the Daily Mail out of Britain, information from the Iranian safehouse has been collected that suggests the bombs intended for use against Israelis in Thailand were to be carried using $27 radios.

Thai authorities say they found 5 of these explosive devices following the botched terrorist operation.
