The request follows the arrest of two Hezbollah terrorists who were believed to have been plotting an attack against Israeli tourists in Thailand.

The report quoted MPB chief Lt. Gen. Kamronwit Thoopkrachang as saying he had received a letter from the Israeli embassy “asking for extra protection for tourists staying on the popular backpacker roads in Bangkok’s Phra Nakhon district,” citing “Hezbollah terrorists were planning to carry out attacks at six locations in Bangkok during Passover.”
